PlanPlus Global names financial planning award winners
Software firm PlanPlus Global has announced the winners of this year’s Global Financial Planning Awards competition, currently in its seventh year.
Paul Greenwood of WealthSpan in Melbourne was the winner of the Europe/Australia region, according to a statement.
Michael Palumbos of Family, Wealth and Legacy in Rochester, New York, was the winner for the Americas region, while Thayn Niemand of Verso Wealth in East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa, took out the award for the Asia region.
“We launched the awards to showcase financial planners doing professional, fiduciary-level planning while transforming their clients’ lives,” said Plan Plus Global chief executive Shawn Brayman.
“We had absolutely no idea the snowball effect that the Global Awards would have on advisers worldwide. The response from countries like Australia, Malaysia and India has been incredible.”
Winners receive a fully paid trip to this year’s Financial Planning Association (US) Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, from 16-18 October and will receive their awards during the annual PlanPlus Global International Breakfast on 15 October.
