The Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) has launched Pulse, a new community to help support paraplanners and grow their careers.

The group is open to AFA members, and AFA chief executive, Phillip Kewin acknowledged the need to recognise paraplanners.

“As paraplanners are often at the very heart of an adviser’s business, our vision for Pulse is to empower them to feel more connected to their own community, share resources and learnings, and have their unique voice heard,” he said.

It would primarily function as an online community and had launched with a facebook page.

Hayley Knight, national chair and paraplanning business owner, would lead the project which would be supported by a team of state chairs.

“Pulse is about uniting as one community to support each other, but it is also about standing up in support of advisers and the work we all do towards the common goal of delivering great advice to everyday Australians,” Knight said.

Standards International’s Michelle Hoskin would host the first Pulse networking event, at the AFA conference in August.
