Anne Graham from McPhail HLG Financial Planning in Victoria was the winner of the 2013 AFA Excellence in Education Award.
The award, now in its sixth year, is partnered with Asteron Life and recognises outstanding advisers who are committed to professionalism and lifelong learning.
“This was a real standout,” said head of Campus AFA Nick Hakes.
“We admire Anne’s belief that on-going education not only allows advisers to improve the technical advice they provide to clients but it also contributes to raising the professional standards within the advice community.”
Respected former business owner and financial adviser, Hugh Crawford, received the 2013 AFA Michael Murphy Award, for his enthusiastic support of the AFA over the past 42 years.
Fox said Crawford’s commitment to his clients, his business and his profession are a shining light on the industry.
“He has lived and breathed the AFA’s ethos which is to lead, support and inspire members of the advice profession in order to build, manage and protect the wealth of everyday Australians. Now that Hugh is entering retirement the AFA is immensely proud to acknowledge his four decades of commitment and service.”
Crawford is an industry stalwart, an adviser of over 40 years standing and life member of the AFA. A past AFA Treasurer, Crawford also served and has sat on numerous AFA committees most recently as Chairman and NSW/ACT representative on the AFA Investment Fund Trustee Board.
