According to Financial Standard, “The FS Power50 recognises the 50 most influential financial advisers in Australia. The advisers on the list were nominated by their peers and the Financial Standard editorial team.”
“The 2019 Power50 focussed on those who are instrumental in shaping the future of financial advice in Australia and who are genuinely influential. There is a wealth of experience represented in this list – of the Power50, 18 have more than 20 years of experience in the industry and 43 have been advising for more than a decade.”
Financial Standard editor Jamie Williamson said: “This year’s Power50 is cultivating and ushering in the new world of advice, and Financial Standard couldn’t be happier to acknowledge them for a job well done.”
In her note to introduce the 2019 Power50 Williamson highlighted the fact that many of the advisers on the list are wielding tangible influence by mentoring younger advisers and offering internships.
“The list is full of advisers whose ethics and convictions stand firm above all else. The younger generation wants their values considered in their investments and financial decisions. Advisers who cater to that and consider a client’s ethical values as part of their holistic plan are bound to flourish,” she said.
