AMP has revealed the winners of its seventh national University Challenge financial planning competition, which saw a record number of teams compete.
A team of students from Griffith University beat out the field of over 700 hopefuls to take the top gong.
AMP director of channel strategy and services David Akers said this year’s contestants demonstrated a high level of technical knowledge, adding that this bodes well for the incoming generation of advisers.
“AMP wants to nurture a new generation of financial advisers in keeping with the drive for higher standards and greater levels of education in the industry,” Mr Akers said.
“The performance of the finalists in the AMP University Challenge and the overall standard of entries this year shows that the future is in good hands.”
The University Challenge is open to tertiary students and is intended to “identify promising new talent” and encourage high education standards and professionalism within the upcoming generation of advisers.
This year’s winners received $5,000 and registration for the 2017 FPA Professionals Congress.
