Social Highlights
AFA Life Insurance Roadshow 2015

The AFA is supporting advisers to adapt to the Life Insurance Framework by hosting a National Life Insurance Roadshow from 25 August to 3 September. If you provide life insurance advice, this event is for you. In particular, practice owning financial advisers and risk specialists will benefit from an extensive panel of experts supporting the workshop including Russell Collins and PJ Byrne who will talk about how to move to the use of hybrids including setting and charging fees, and how to minimise the risk of clawback.
