TAL-aligned dealer group Affinia Financial Advisers is supporting the AFA’s call to increase professional development by urging all its advisers to join the association's membership.
As part of the joint arrangement, advisers who join Affinia will become members of the AFA and will be offered development training for the AFA’s chartered life practitioner (ChLP) designation.
Affinia general manager Craig Parker said that building the partnership into its professional development program - the Affinia Risk Academy - will help “deliver the confidence consumers need” to seek financial advice.
“Affinia shares the AFA’s goal of increasing professionalism of advisers and we particularly support using development programs that have been purpose-built for advice practitioners,” Mr Parker said.
“True professionalism means being committed to quality advice through ongoing education, giving back to the profession, and maintaining membership of a peak professional body like the AFA.”
AFA chief executive Brad Fox said Affinia is one of the first licensees to support the AFA in its bid to increase professional membership.
“We are delighted to be able to join with Affinia to encourage more advisers to become members of the AFA, while also offering a professional program that enhances both the business performance and professional credibility of their risk specialists,” Mr Fox said.
