The Female Excellence in Advice Award program is a joint initiative
of the Association of Financial Advisers and TAL.
Established in 2011, the Award recognises women in financial advice who are making a significant contribution to their profession, their community and their clients.
The Award promotes positive change in the financial advice sector, encouraging more women to enter the industry and to take leadership roles. Importantly, it aims to give choice to Australians when it comes to getting financial advice. With more women in the industry and a better representation of women in senior roles in financial advice, we hope to address the challenges experienced by Australian women when it comes to seeking advice, being adequately resourced for retirement and obtaining insurance.
Nominations are currently closed, however the 2014 program will open soon.
The Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) and TAL are pleased to announce that Catherine Robson of Affinity Private is the 2013 winner of the AFA Female Excellence in Advice Award. AFA CEO, Brad Fox, said Ms Robson is a deserving winner of the Award and personifies the high calibre of female financial advisers nominated for the Award and their commitment to their profession, their clients and their communities.
