The Association of Financial Advisers is gearing up to kick off its national roadshow at the end of May to discuss what the political landscape means to the industry.
The roadshow kicks off in Hobart on 29 May, which is just after the federal election and will give delegates the opportunity to hear the association's early insights into the post-election political landscape and its impacts.
AFA chief executive Philip Kewin said that the roadshow would look at the impact of the election and also other policy updates from AFA.
"As well as reviewing the likely impact of the federal election, our policy update will also review the rapid changes in the world of advice, in terms of education and ongoing developments post-royal commission, and what it will mean for advisers and their businesses, now and in the future," said Mr Kewin.
The roadshow will provide a timely post election update, said Mr Kewin, and would provide advisers with practical tips to create a successful career in the industry.
"Our program is very much focused on delivering practical content that is useful, timely and relevant to advisers in their practices," he said.
The roadshow will Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane, and will feature AFA advisers like Hugh Roberston and Troy MacMillan who will share their advice journeys with delegates.
Morningstar presenter Jody Fitzgerald will also present a session about client engagement, and Jennifer Whelan, director of Psynapse Psychometrics, will present a session about cognitive science research.
