Atlas Wealth Nominated in Four Categories in 2018 ifa Excellence Awards


For the third year running Atlas Wealth Management has been nominated as a finalist in this years 2018 ifa Excellence Awards. What makes this year even more special than previous years is that not only are we a finalist in four categories but that James Ridley, who is one of our specialist financial planners that came on board in October 2017, has been nominated as a finalist in two categories which shows what a large impact he has made in the expat financial advice space in such a short amount of time.

The 2018 ifa Excellence Awards, the only program bench marking the success of the independent financial advice sector, is in its fifth year and rewards best practice and celebrates independently minded and client-centric advisers and firms across 20 categories.

“It’s always a humbling experience to be nominated as a finalist in these prestigious awards but to be shortlisted in four categories shows that we’re doing something right” said Brett Evans, Managing Director of Atlas Wealth Management.

“We are incredibly proud of the financial advice that we provide to Australian expats in over 25 countries however we understand the magnitude of the role going forward given the large amount of legislative disruption that Australian expats are facing with governments, local and foreign, introducing changes that effect expats financially.”

  • Innovator of the Year – Company Category (Atlas Wealth Management)
  • Investment Adviser of the Year – Individual Category (James Ridley
  • Best Client Servicing – Company Category (Atlas Wealth Management)
