AMP is looking to promote a new generation of advisers to take the industry forward amid a growing need for high quality, professional advice with its University Challenge.
Any university and TAFE students could enter the challenge individually or as a team and try their hand at being a financial adviser and have a change to share $10,000 in prize money.
The first assignment was devising a financial plan for a hypothetical couple.
AMP Australia chief executive, Alex Wade, said: “Financial advice is a great career and can have a profoundly positive impact on the quality of life of those who receive advice.
“The AMP University Challenge is an ideal platform for talented students to showcase their capability and kickstart a career in the industry.”
The finals, to be held in October, would include a series of activities and quizzes to decide the ultimate winner.
