Licensees throw support behind Wheel Classic

AMP Financial Planning and Matrix Planning Solutions have pledged support for Future2’s annual cycling fundraiser, which will see 32 advisers take to the road ahead of the FPA Professionals Congress in Adelaide.

The FPA’s charity organisation is aiming to raise $100,000 over the seven-day cycling event in November, which will start in Melbourne and end in Adelaide.

FPA chief executive Mark Rantall welcomed the fundraising support of AMP Financial Planning and Matrix for Future2.

“Future2 is another way that financial planners can make a positive difference to the lives of those in need and give back to the communities in which they work,” Mr Rantall said.

“We are extremely proud of Future2 Foundation’s flagship fundraiser, which has raised over $400,000 over the last four years."

AMP Financial Planning managing director Michael Guggenheimer also pointed out the importance of the fundraising initiative in supporting disadvantaged youth.

“For financial planning professionals, our focus is helping others. The annual Future2 Wheel Classic continues to be an innovative way for people in the industry to provide their support to those in need,” Mr Guggenheimer said.

“The opportunity to visit a number of local communities along the way and see how the fundraising directly supports Australia’s disadvantage youth is truly inspiring."

Each cyclist is seeking the support of friends, family and colleagues who want to recognise their efforts and dedication to a great cause.

The seven-day cycling fundraiser will take place from 13 November and will comprise a 1,050 km ride from Melbourne to Adelaide where the cyclists will arrive for the start of the FPA conference on 19 November.
