The Australian Financial Advisory Network

AFAN is an option for financial advice & risk professionals to keep the businesses they have built and add a diversified range of services.

TO FIGHT THE RISING COSTS OF RUNNING A RISK BUSINESS

What we are hearing from Risk Advisers is that the cost of the compliance burden, time and complexity of abiding by the rules, is taking away from their ability to provide simple advice in the best interests of their clients. Do we remain overworked and unhappy, be forced out with nothing, or do we choose to continue on our own terms?
AFAN is a chance to add value, to pass on your knowledge & experience and to exit the industry on your own terms.
It’s the chance to continue to earn income &, more importantly, the chance to continue to have a purpose.
You have worked hard to build your business and reputation, you want to offer your clients value through access to specialist advice and work within an efficient and professionally run practice.
What is AFAN_ (1)

AFAN gives you access to

Marketing

How many opportunities slip through your fingers either because you do not provide the requisite services or your systems have not been set up to notify you when events are taking place in your clients’ lives? AFAN’s marketing systems are constantly fine-tuned to ensure that clients are regularly kept up-to-date on our full range of services & that Advisers are able to communicate the benefits of these services at the appropriate time.

Administration

Proficient administration in the financial services industry is vital – our clients’ livelihoods are literally at stake – so experience & an eye for detail are essential, even more so post FOFA & the Hayne Royal Commission. AFAN’s administration team has a wealth of industry experience & knowledge which simply provides advisers & clients alike with a great deal of comfort knowing that the job simply gets done.

Paraplanning

AFAN’s founding partners have spent decades learning, researching & developing what many have called the most thorough & informative strategic advice documents in the industry. Our intellectual property forms the body of our statements of advice which are carefully prepared by our outsourced paraplanning firm.

Claims Management

In our opinion this is what sorts the wheat out from the chaff & our 100% success rate in having claims approved speaks for itself. It all starts with making sure that each client file is ‘claims ready’ so that money is deposited into the clients’ bank accounts as quickly as possible & with a minimum of fuss.
