We have awarded this prestigious honour to David Whyte for the significant contributions he has made to our profession over the course of his career. David’s leadership and dedication have had an enormously positive impact on the sector.

He is also a member of the Financial Dispute Resolution Advisory Council.

Nick Hakes, Financial Advice New Zealand CEO, said “Financial advisers work hard for their clients and have seen the impact of the last few years. To come together last night as a profession to recognise some of the advisers who have gone the extra mile, has been inspiring.” We are looking forward to what 2024-2025 brings as we continue to support financial advisers to thrive.”
