FPA Awards

Recognising outstanding planners, paraplanners, students and practices.

The FPA Awards are designed to recognise best practice financial planning, and FPA members who have gone above and beyond for their local community.

Your hard work and dedication deserve recognition and there’s no better way to get recognised, than to receive an FPA Award.

Award winners were announced at the 2017 FPA Professionals Congress held in Hobart Tasmania in November 2017.
