AFA Adviser of the Year Award 2019
Elliot Watson has been named, for the second year in a row, as one of three finalists in the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) Adviser of the Year Award.
AFA CEO, Philip Kewin said the Award, which is now in its 16th year, recognises extraordinary and visionary individual advisers. “The Award celebrates the qualities of leadership, innovation, client-centricity and commitment to professional excellence. The finalists for this year’s Award have proven themselves to be true leaders of our profession.”
The judging process, held over four months, started with written applications, then telephone interviews from which the top five finalists were selected. The next step involved site visits, client surveys and compliance audits. From that round of judging the top three finalists were selected to participate in the finalist showcase on the 13th August which involved a 15-minute presentation and a 30-minute Q&A session including a case study.
The AFA 2019 Adviser of the Year, which has been supported by Zurich since inception, will be announced on 29 August 2019 at the Gala Dinner held during the AFA Conference in Adelaide.
