AMP has launched a new adviser training and development program aimed at providing new and existing advisers with “broad experience” across multiple facets of the industry.
In a statement, AMP said the new Adviser Pathways program will take two to three years to complete, and will be available to “a wide variety of candidates”, so long as they have a FASEA-approved degree.
“The program is part of AMP’s commitment to raising standards and professionalism in advice,” the business said.
“It leverages AMP’s long-established experience in building rewarding careers for advice professionals and will give candidates a broad experience in advice to enable them to find the most suitable role to match their skills.”
The program will offer training across multiple means of advice delivery, AMP said, including “phone-based and technology enabled”, as well as face-to-face.
AMP head of advice education, capability and careers Rod Edge said the new program came in response to the changing needs of clients.
“We’re seeing growing demand for financial advice from Australians, so we’re strengthening and improving our learning and development proposition,” he said.
“Advisers within AMP licensees have contributed ideas and support for this new proposition. By aligning with the government’s new adviser education standards and trends in customer preferences we are creating the advisers of the future.”
