For the eighth year, Cole Murray has won the Booster KiwiSaver Practice of the Year award, proving again that regional financial services firms are punching above their weight on the national stage.
Booster, previously known as Grosvenor, was founded in 1998 and is one of New Zealand’s largest KiwiSaver scheme providers, looking after the savings of nearly 100,000 Kiwis. In 2014, the NZ government chose Booster as one of its default KiwiSaver providers alongside large financial corporates.
The Booster award is designed to honour the achievements of an advisory practice dedicated and committed to KiwiSaver and contenders are judged not only the number of members they introduce to the KiwiSaver scheme, but also on the level of support and service they provide.
Booster’s head of sales and marketing, Diana Papadopoulos says people are demanding quality financial advice about KiwiSaver. “It’s not just about choosing a scheme; members are wanting to ensure their money is working the best it can. Independent advice is crucial for people to make sound financial decisions and we appreciate firms like Cole Murray are giving people that advice. They have demonstrated on-going dedication to helping people on their financial journey,” says Mrs Papadopoulos.
Cole Murray director Jeremy Cole receives the KiwiSaver Practice of the Year 2016 award from Booster CEO David Beattie.
Cole Murray director Jeremy Cole is again pleased to receive the award. “For the eighth year to be recognised as the top KiwiSaver practice by Booster, is fantastic. It confirms that our brand of realistic and workable advice we give to our clients is resonating with them. Now we have to find room on the office wall for another plaque though!”
