Stockbrokers association launches education pathway
The Stockbrokers and Financial Advisers Association (SAFAA) has teamed up with Western Sydney University to launch a master’s course it says will equip advisers to meet FASEA standards.
SAFAA issued a statement on Tuesday welcoming the release of further guidance on the incoming mandatory standards and education regime for financial advisers and announcing the new course, which will include the newly stipulated bridging course.
Together, the organisations will launch the master's of stockbroking and financial advising qualification, which includes the graduate diploma of stockbroking and financial advising.
“We are pleased that following direct consultations with the federal government and FASEA, they have listened to industry feedback and implemented this reform,” said SAFAA CEO Andrew Green.
“The partnership with the University of Western Sydney ensures we can equip advisers to meet the new education pathways in the provision of financial advice to investors.”
