MLC is moving to escalate its IFA-facing operations as the burgeoning independent and boutique financial advice sector continues to develop.
MLC has announced it is signing on as principal partner of the ifa Business Strategy Day roadshow, taking place around the country in late March.
Speaking to ifa, NAB Wealth general manager of distribution Geoff Rogers said the company’s support for the event mirrors a broader move to support the growing IFA sector.
“The IFA market is growing, as is the number of boutique AFSLs in the market,” Mr Rogers said.
“We’re supporting this important segment by strategically positioning and investing in products, operations and service, sales and distribution teams to meet their needs.
“With a growing number of advisers choosing to operate under their own AFSL, we are providing increased support to more advisers from more dealer groups and building strong partnerships to ensure that the products and services provided are in the best interest of clients and create efficiencies in the financial planning practice.”
Mr Rogers will be presenting at the event, outlining what MLC has identified as key drivers of growth for independent and boutique firms.
He will join a line up of industry experts, including Sue Viskovic, Steve Prendeville, Sean Graham and Jenny Pearse, alongside a number of leading advice practitioners and principals.
The roadshow will commence in Melbourne on 20 March, followed by Sydney on 22 March, Brisbane on 26 March and Perth on 28 March.
Other supporters include platinum partner MLC Life Insurance, gold partners Centuria, Fortius and YTML, event partners Hub24 and Moelis Australia, association partner the AIOFP, education partner Kaplan and event supporters Elixir Consulting and Assured Support.
