Female Excellence in Advice
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 celebrates diversity in the financial advice industry, promotes positive change and encourages more women to enter the industry and to take leadership roles. Importantly, it aims to give Australians choice when it comes to getting advice. With more women in the industry and a better representation of women in senior roles in financial advice, we hope to address some major challenges experienced by Australian women when it comes to seeking advice, being adequately resourced for retirement and obtaining insurance.
Please take time to recognise excellence. Nominate yourself or another female financial adviser. Support an Award that supports women. Entries open 24 May and close 31 July 2012. The Award recipient will be announced at the AFA Annual Conference on 30 October 2012.
