Hodge top dog at the Financial Planner Awards

MATTHEW Hodge at PwC must be a very fine planner indeed, or else he has some excellent friends at Money Management, which run the annual Financial Planner of the Year awards.

Over at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, which was the venue for the 2012 ceremony, Hodge swooped the award for financial planner of the year for the fourth year in succession.

This was the 17th incarnation of the awards and once again planners from a range of categories donned their dinner jackets to receive gongs. They included investment company planner of the year, won by Allan Harragan of Grangewood Financial Management; and investment planner of the year, which was won by Robin Keyte from Keyte Limited Chartered Financial Planners.
