Hall of fame with Richard Klipin – former AFA CEO

August 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


As part of the AFA’s celebration of our 75th anniversary in 2021, we are going to reflect upon our history and our achievements over the years.

In this webinar, you will hear from former AFA CEO Richard Klipin who ran the AFA between 2006 and 2013 and was pivotal in creating what the AFA is today. In an interview-style format, Richard will be asked about his early days at the AFA, the things that he has learnt about the financial advice profession, and to reflect upon some of the key activity during his time at the AFA. He will discuss the fallout from the GFC and the waves of reforms that flowed from the Ripoll Inquiry, including his work and dealings with politicians from both sides.

Richard will also share other fond and memorable moments with AFA members, partners and directors from his many years at the helm.

Please join us for a chat with one of the AFA’s favourite sons.

Richard Klipin is now the CEO of the Financial Services Council in New Zealand, however, he still keeps a close eye on what is happening in Australia.
