Over 360 members of the wealth management industry attended the inaugural awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of their colleagues, and network with industry leaders and peers.

Australian comedian and satirist, Mark Humphries, assumed emcee duties and provided entertainment and laughter throughout the evening.

The black-tie gala ceremony showcased the depth of talent in the nation’s leading professionals and businesses in the wealth management industry while affirming the sector’s essential role in supporting the expansion of Australia’s economy.

The entire industry gained national recognition for excellence at the premier awards night, from executives to rising stars, as well as asset and fund managers, super funds, insurance firms, innovative technology firms, dealer groups, custodians, ETF providers, and financial advisers.

To determine the winners, the finalists were invited to submit a five-minute video submission, covering key performance indicators connected with their market specialisation. They could also provide supporting information and adviser testimonials to bolster their submissions.

A panel of industry stakeholders, including leading advisers from the ifa Excellence Awards and interconnected professionals – such as the Momentum Media wealth management editorial leadership team – assessed all information to determine the winners for each category.

For adviser-focused categories, winners were determined by a panel of industry representatives and corporate judges, alongside the Momentum Media wealth management editorial leadership team. Click here to view the methodology.
