The third Mindful Money Awards recognising leaders in the Ethical Investing world in New Zealand were held on Thursday June 29th.
It was the first time that we had entered, and we were proud to be awarded the Best Ethical Financial Adviser of the Year along with our friends at Ethical Investing New Zealand.
Many of your fund managers were also winners, highly commended and finalists, we have outlined the information below for you to share in our successes.
For the second year, Carey was also a judge in a different category, an experience where she learned a lot (and really enjoyed the process).
In addition to the highlighted winners below, Harbour was also a finalist in the Best Ethical Retail Investment Fund Provider and Kernel was a finalist in the Best New Ethical Fund.
Moneyworks - Best Ethical Financial Adviser of the Year 2023
In our first year entering, we are pleased to have been awarded the title of Best Ethical Financial Adviser of the Year 2023, as co-winners with our friends at Ethical Investing NZ.
We learned a lot by entering the awards and it provided us with the opportunity to understand what our client offering and ethical investing process encompasses, and we will be continually updating and clarifying our framework, ready for our entry next year.
