The Financial Planning Association (FPA) has signalled that at least one education provider it plans to be in bed with for the rollout of the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) reforms is the privately-run Kaplan Professional, announcing the two groups would run a series of events together.
Kaplan had already said it would run low-cost, largely online offerings to help advisers meet the education requirements imposed by FASEA, with a recent Money Management survey finding that these factors had made them the provider of choice for advisers needing further qualifications under the professionalisation regime.
The ‘FPA Careers in Financial Planning Event Series’ would run networking events in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney in coming weeks, providing tertiary students with the opportunity to meet local and national employers, education providers, and young professionals.
The curator of an executive leadership program ran by Kaplan, Milo-Arne Wilkinson, would speak at the Sydney and Brisbane events, FPA student member, Angus McGregor, would front the Adelaide event, and associate advisor with Capital Partners Wealth Advisers, Milena König, would talk in Perth. Speaker details for Melbourne were unconfirmed.
