Elders names recipients of FChFP scholarship
Elders Financial Planning has announced it has awarded two of its advisers with scholarships to become AFA Fellow Chartered Financial Practitioners.
In a statement, Elders general manager Tony Beaven announced the FChFP scholarships have gone to Andrew Furlanetto from Victoria and Les Hayward from Western Australia.
The scholarships are part of an education program that is designed to support advisers as they upskill and prepare for the new adviser education standards, the statement said.
“We have, over the course of the year, been working closely with the AFA on academic pathways for the adviser network in anticipation of future education standard reforms and have pleasure in offering scholarships in order to help existing advisers start the process of obtaining the FChFP status,” Mr Beaven said.
AFA general manager of member services, partnerships and campus, Nick Hakes, said the AFA is delighted to support Elders with its education initiative.
“Elders are to be commended on taking the lead and setting an example for their adviser network to further their education. Higher education is something to be embraced, not to walk away from,” he said.
“FChFP provides financial advisers with the tools to understand, analyse and adapt to the drivers of change that are shaping the future for financial advisers.”
