The Independent Financial Advisers Association of Australia has awarded Gold Standard medals to a number of its members whom it says meets the legal definition of independence.
At an awards ceremony during the association’s recent symposium, IFAAA co-founders Daniel Brammall and Susannah Kulincevic awarded nine members a ‘Gold Standard of Independence’ medal in recognition of the “effort they each had made in becoming a genuinely independent financial adviser, as defined by the Section 923A of the Corporations Act”.
“These winning Gold Standard members have won these medals as each of them are there at the forefront of independence, blazing the path of the new era in financial planning,” Mr Brammall said.
“The IFAAA holds the Gold Standard winning members in very high esteem and I would personally like to congratulate each individual as they have shown us all in the industry that there is a way forward.”
