Gerard Lowe, Lowe Financial Group
Congratulations to Gerard Lowe, his company Lowe Financial Group was named
as one of three three advisers in the 2010 AFA Adviser of the Year
Awards Highly Commended category which ran for the first time.
AFA Adviser of the Year Awards
Sponsored by Zurich since its inception, there were a record number of
entries in 2010, the eighth year in which the Award has been presented.
This year has also seen a continuing trend in the diversity of advisers
who have nominated for the Award. Candidates, including the six
finalists, range from risk specialists to general practitioners through
to investment and superannuation experts.
According to Zurich’s General Manager - Life Risk, Colin Morgan, the
bar is continuing to be raised in terms of the calibre of candidates
and the businesses they run, which has led to the naming for the first
time of three advisers in the Highly Commended category, including:
o Gerard Lowe: (Vic) Lowe Financial Group
“The fact that this is the first time the judges have named three
highly commended advisers, as well as the finalists, demonstrates the
calibre of advisers in today’s industry,” said Mr Morgan.
“Choosing the finalists for this year’s Award has been more difficult
than ever before,” added AFA CEO Richard Klipin, who continued, “The
judges decided that by introducing a Highly Commended category they
could formally recognise the outstanding talent of those advisers who
came within a hair’s breadth of making the final round.”
