Quite frankly this is embarrassing this article. It's March 2020 and people in the industry are only speaking out now. I spoke to the FPA head, Mr Magoo on there idiotic stance on this position 2.5 years ago when they put forward a proposal calling for a Bachelor of Financial Planning for all. During that discussion I pointed out there were 180,000 Bachelor of Business Students and we just shut the door on them. We shut the door on these students entering. We Shut the door on them buying our businesses. We shut the door on 180,000 highly educated Commerce, Business and Accounting students providing advice to future Australians. YOU IDIOTS. I can't believe there are FPA members still out there. Don't get me wrong we need minimum entry standards but we've made it incredibly tough for highly educated people to enter.
