Clients seek advisers who belong to a professional association and abide by a strict Code of Conduct. The AFA Code of Conduct is based on six guiding principles that govern our member's professional practice.
We believe that recognising excellence is integral to building a strong profession. Each year the AFA, together with our partners, announce five prestigious awards for quality advice and an award for Life Company of the Year.
