Boyce Financial Services awarded 'Practice of the Year'
19 December 2017
Boyce Financial Services (BFS) was recently awarded the Lonsdale Financial Group “Business of the Year” at the Lonsdale and IOOF Alliances annual conference. In a fiercely contested field, BFS was awarded the accolade for the third occasion having previously attained the title in 2014 and 2011.
Lonsdale Financial Group supports a network of more than 120 financial planning practices and 250 financial advisors from across Australia. The “Lonsdale Business of the Year” award is bestowed annually to a business judged on deliverance of exceptional advice, investing in professional development and an enduring commitment and care to clients. In presenting the award to BFS, Mark Stephen CEO of Lonsdale, congratulated the BFS on the “outstanding achievement” of attaining the title not once but on three separate occasions.
“Boyce Financial Services is a valued member of the Lonsdale network and consistently delivers an exceptional level of service and advice to clients.”
Lindsay Garnock, Managing Director of BFS admitted to being initially shocked at the announcement. Lindsay credited the award to a byproduct of the continuing hard work and genuine care for clients across the entire BFS team.
“Our commitment to client care and to a transparent and fair pricing structure has helped the business grow and attract clients from inside and outside the Boyce Chartered Accountants’ network,” said Mr Garnock.
2017 marked a year of significant legislative change to the financial planning industry. A number of new legislative demands were implemented to raise the professional, ethical and education standards of the financial planning industry. BFS welcomed the proposed changes and recently introduced a new financial adviser, Angus Stevenson to assist with the ongoing growth of the business.
Mr Garnock admits that it is great to be recognised and awarded by peers, but the real test of the success of the business is in helping to maximise the wealth of clients – an aim that he and his team of advisors are intent on continuing by working hand in hand with their clients and their Accountants to achieve the best overall outcomes.
