SMSF Adviser has officially announced the winners of the 2017 SMSF Awards, an event recognising excellence amongst SMSF service providers.

At an awards function in Sydney tonight, SMSF Adviser announced the winners of the prestigious SMSF Awards, as well as those who received ‘highly commended’ honours across 14 categories.

Now in its fourth year, the event showcases the organisations that best service the needs of the SMSF sector.


The winners and runners-up were determined by a comprehensive and independent survey process.

The survey – compiled with the guidance of independent consultants – was distributed to our database of SMSF professionals who rated organisations based of their efficiency, value and customer service. The results were analysed and assessed by an independent analyst. 

Terry Braithwaite, SMSF Adviser’s head of partnerships, said the SMSF Awards recognise organisations that deliver exceptional service and illustrate their level of commitment to the industry.

“With over one million SMSF members controlling almost $650 billion in assets, SMSF service providers play a critical role in the evolution of the SMSF sector,” Mr Braithwaite said.
