IFP supports Australian financial services roadshow

Australian financial services information provider Dealers Group is to host a series of roadshows focusing on practice development for financial planners and IFA businesses.

Dealers Group says the events in London, Manchester and Edinburgh will provide high-end strategies for advisers committed to transforming their practice, through a series of conference sessions and interactive workshops.

The speakers will include Yeske Buie directors David B. Yeske and Elissa Buie.

Dealers Group spokesperson Richard Milroy says: “This conference will be one of the last opportunities for IFAs to provide feedback on the Retail Distribution Review to the FSA.

“It is important that advisers who want to transform their businesses to a more sustainable model have independent forums like this that can help them get there.”

The events, to be held in December, will be supported by the Institute of Financial Planning.

IFP chief executive Nick Cann says: “The IFP is once again delighted to be associated with this world class conference programme. All of the key issues that are facing financial planning businesses are covered in this programme. Those reviewing the proposals in the FSA’s retail distribution review will find a route to the financial planner category within a sensible timeframe by attending this event.”
