Advisers will get to hear Assistant Treasurer, Senator Arthur Sinodinos’ plans for the financial services profession in his first official address to the sector in just over a week.
Sinodinos has been confirmed as a plenary speaker at this month’s AFA National Conference on the Gold Coast.
Senator Sinodinos was introduced to the AFA last year when he spoke at a breakfast outlining the Coalition’s intention to eradicate $1 billion of red tape that is crippling business in Australia.
AFA CEO Brad Fox is pleased that Sinodinos has accepted the invitation, and says that he has “a genuine understanding” of the industry.
“We are very pleased to provide the Assistant Treasurer with a platform to outline the Coalition’s strategic plan for improving access to and affordability of financial advice for everyday Australians,” Fox said. “Affordability and access is critical to the financial wellbeing of our members’ clients.”
This year’s conference will feature 12 plenary sessions, 39 stream and masterclass sessions and 90 speakers, including Senator Sinodinos, twitter co-creator Dom Sagolla, New York Times best-selling author Ron Kaufman, AFL Premiership Coach, Paul Roos and Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road Wealth Management, Mark Bouris.
The AFA Conference runs from 12–15 October at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast. Registrations are available for the entire event, or as day passes from www.afaconference.com.au
