Netwealth-linked dealer group Financial Planning Services Australia has presented its two most “prestigious” national financial planning awards to authorised reps at its Hamilton Island conference.
Tim Kent, proprietor of Kent Private Wealth, was the recipient of the FPSA’s National Practice of the Year award, and Frank Schaechtili, proprietor of FFP Pty Ltd, was awarded FPSA’s highest individual adviser award, the Professional Standards and Compliance Excellence award.
The National Practice of the Year award recognises the practice that not only represents high performance and growth, but also maintains strong compliance, active engagement, professionalism of the advisers and staff, exceptional service, attendance at all training events and delivery of quality advice, according to an FPSA statement.
Netwealth Advice Group head of advice Simon Micallef said Mr Kent and his team at Kent Private Wealth have had an “outstanding” year and excelled in all areas to win the award.
“The team have continued to focus on their client needs, exceptional professional service and, above all, delivering quality advice,” he said.
The Professional Standards and Compliance Excellence award recognises adviser professionalism, strong compliance standards, attendance at key forums and training and active contribution to the business, FPSA said.
“Frank exemplifies quality compliance and advice standards and actively supports, encourages and participates in the continued improvement in our compliance and advice process through our various consultative committees,” Mr Micallef said.
“Frank has been instrumental in the development of best practice advice processes and tools at FPSA,” he added.
Mr Micallef said the awards are integral in the continued evolution of the FPSA business and recognises the achievements of advisers.
