WHAT IS THE ALTUS AWARD The Altus Award recognizes individuals and corporations who possess outstanding fiscal responsibility, integrity and sustainable contribution to Utah’s economy. The word “altus” is a Latin adjective meaning “high, deep, noble or profound.” Each recipient of the award shares and demonstrates the belief in three core values of The Altus Group: 1. Building a sustainable, responsible business culture for all Utahns. 2. Empowering individuals to reach their financial aspirations by teaching 
 sound fiscal principals. 3. Developing fiscally strong family units by meeting their diverse needs 
 through appropriate financial planning.
History of the award Introduced by Dan Matheson, a managing partner of The Altus Group, the first Altus Award was presented at a client appreciation event on October 3, 2016 to Governor Gary Herbert for his work in making Utah the most fiscally responsible state in The United States of America. During his presentation to Governor Herbert, Mr. Matheson explained “The word ‘altus’ means deep, noble, or profound. It is our goal to make a deep and profound difference in the financial lives of each of our clients. Tonight we (The Altus Group) begin a tradition as we unveil The Altus Award. The Altus Award is given to individuals or organizations who have contributed significant and profound financial leadership to the citizens in our great state. We believe Governor Herbert exemplifies the very essence of The Altus Award.” Governor Herbert graciously accepted on behalf of all the Utah citizens who have worked to make Utah “The 2016 Best Place for Business by CNBC”. He added that Utah also incorporates financial literacy in our education system and has a AAA bond rating. “Utah is in a very strong fiscal situation. We don't spend money we don't have. And we make sure that government is limited,” he said.
CRITERIA The Altus Award is presented to an individual or organization who shares our values and demonstrates the highest level of fiscal responsibility and is making a significant economic impact in the lives of Utah families. Nominations go through a rigorous screening before being submitted to a third-party panel of judges consisting of leading economic and financial-planning minds in Utah.
