Finn Kelly, CEO of Wealth Enhancers, a Synchron-aligned financial advice practice based in Victoria, has won the Money Management Young Achiever of the Year Award 2012 (the Award).
The Award recognizes outstanding young individuals in the financial advice arena.
Synchron Director Don Trapnell said, “Finn is truly deserving of Money Management’s Young Achiever of the Year Award. On behalf of Synchron directors, I heartily congratulate him on winning. It confirms that he is not only one of Synchron’s highest achievers but also one of Australia’s.”
Mr Kelly was a finalist for the Award last year, a finalist in the 2011 Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) Rising Star Award and winner of the 2011 AFA Excellence in Education Award.
Mr Trapnell said Mr Kelly’s win also demonstrates that Synchron’s NextGen program has played a significant role in helping to develop, foster and encourage its younger advisers.
“NextGen is a program we introduced to encourage younger advisers to join Synchron and to support their development via education, soft skills training, coaching, mentoring and lead generation,” Mr Trapnell said. “We are constantly investing in their development in order to improve the efficiencies of their practices and foster better outcomes for them and their businesses. We are delighted that our investment is paying off.”
Mr Kelly said, “This award is recognition of the great work of the Wealth Enhancer team, my partner Sarah and the support of Synchron and my mentors in the industry”.
Another cause for celebration is Mr Kelly’s engagement to his partner, Sarah Riegelhuth, at sunrise on Diamond Head at the recent Synchron National Conference in Hawaii.
In his former career, Mr Kelly spent seven years as an Army Officer in the Australian Defence Force. His formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Science majoring in Maths and Physics, a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning), a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary), a Diploma of Government, and a Diploma of Management. He is currently undertaking the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute Program.
Wealth Enhancers is a boutique financial advice business headquartered in Melbourne.
