About PlanPlus (

The PlanPlus Global Financial Planning Awards were formed in 2013 to further establish financial planning as a recognized profession. They are doing this by bringing public and industry recognition to financial planners who are among the very best in their contribution to the profession.

The competitions that they hold are limited to professional financial planners who have a professional designation, and are a member of a professional association. Further, their work with a client must be solely based on what is in the best interests of the client.

Initially, the competition was restricted to three global regions – the Americas, Europe (includes Australia, New Zealand, and Russia) and Asia (includes the Middle East and Africa). The competition has been extended and they now hold National competitions in a number of countries. The winners from each National competition advance to compete in the Global Awards competition for their region. For example, the Canada Awards winners compete in the Global Awards Americas Region.
