05 July 2018 — 1 minute read

SMSF Adviser is pleased to present the winners of the 2018 SMSF Awards, recognising and rewarding excellence and client satisfaction amongst SMSF service providers.

At an event in Sydney this evening, SMSF Adviser presented 15 awards to SMSF service providers who assist with the investment and compliance-based functions of an SMSF practice.

The full list of winners is below and you can access an interactive breakdown of this year’s awards highlights here.


A record 1,900 SMSF professionals took the time to vote for and rate the efficiency, professionalism and quality of their service providers this year, in a comprehensive survey that was sent direct to SMSF Adviser readers.

The SMSF Adviser team congratulates this year’s champions for navigating a tough and competitive post-reform environment.

“This is the most intense reform period we’ve seen since the era of Peter Costello, and SMSF service providers have been dealing with major changes, late-running guidance, and panicked clients,” said head of partnerships at SMSF Adviser, Terry Braithwaite.

“Sincere congratulations to those who have juggled all that with competitive price points, efficient systems and exemplary customer service,” he added.
