The AFA has confirmed the new Minister responsible for the financial services sector, Senator Jane Hume, will make an address to advisers at its 2019 Conference in Adelaide at the end of this month.
AFA CEO, Philip Kewin, said Senator Hume has already taken an active interest in the financial services sector and financial advice in particular (see: New Financial Services Minister Welcomed).
“Her address [at this year’s Conference] will be the first opportunity for our adviser community to gain the most up-to-date progress report on Professional Standards, FASEA and the implementation of Royal Commission implementations,” said Kewin, who also noted the importance for delegates to have the opportunity to hear directly from the Assistant Minister about the Government’s forward agenda in relation to financial advice.
The 2019 AFA Conference will take place in Adelaide from 28 – 30 August under its new ‘United’ theme.
