Vodafone 2004 INFINZ Industry Awards

Vodafone 2004 INFINZ Industry Awards

Wellington Friday 30th April 2004 ­ The finance industry celebrated a good year at the Vodafone 2004 INFINZ Industry Awards held in Wellington last night.

³2003 could go down as the year of outside distractions and off-shore influences,² said Paul Hocking, Executive Director INFINZ.

³Yet despite all the external distractions, the industry as a whole has managed to finish the year in good form, and numerous organisations ­ many of whom we have celebrated in these awards ­ have demonstrated the measure of their professionalism and quality performances.

³In March there was of course global insecurity surrounding the war in Iraq and renewed international terrorism. Later came the effects of a rising Kiwi dollar. During the year there were a number of new regulatory challenges ­ reviews of corporate governance and development of best practice codes, new accounting standards and now investigations into the funds management industry.²

³Each finalist organisation has clearly demonstrated that despite external distractions, they can remain focused on growing their core business and maintaining professional standards,² he said.
