We won an award... Well, kind of…
We received an email this week from APAC Excellence 2019 awards for Most Innovative Asset and Money Management Service – Australia.
Initially, we were excited to receive the award until we got to the bottom of the message and realised all we had to do was pay between $799 and $2,810 to receive it.
Unfortunately, we won’t be paying to win this award as we like to work hard for our recognition, so keep posted for our award updates in 2019!
