“We believe that hard work deserves to be rewarded, and that’s why we make sure that we recognise the outstanding achievers in the financial planning industry annually,” according to the Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI). On Tuesday night, at a gala dinner that formed part of the FPI’s Professional Digital Convention, the 2020 award winners were announced.
