New adviser association gains traction
The Association of Real Return Investment Advisers is expecting a solid turnout at its first Melbourne roundtable, having launched earlier this year.
The newly-formed association – which goes by the acronym ARRIA – will be holding the roundtable on 27 May and said it expects more than 20 advisers to attend.
The key topic up for discussion will be the failure of equities-based strategies for investors, and the increasing allure of the outcomes-based investment philosophy.
“We have been thrilled with the level of adviser interest around Australia with the launch of this new adviser-led group and the demand for a forum to investigate and develop outcome-based portfolios for their clients,” said ARRIA general manager Philip Reid.
“A clear objective of ARRIA is to create an environment where all ‘Real Return Investment Advisers’ and relevant stakeholders can network in appropriate forums to advance the exchange of information, best practice and compliance issues.”
