Gen Next is the home for all up-and-coming advisers

A ‘Gen Nexter’ is an aspiring adviser or business owner who is looking to evolve, innovate and grow their career, business, skills, approach, engagement, and clients through new ideas within an aspirational and dynamic community.

The mandate for Gen Next, like all AFA Communities of Practice, is to connect knowledge with performance. What is unique to Gen Next however, is its focus on creating a powerful peer group to facilitate the transfer of knowledge, skills, experience and networks from experienced advisers to those building their career. The Gen Next Community of Practice brings together professionals who share a passion for advice and the challenges associated with their career stage. Through the process of sharing information and experience, members learn and develop both personally and professionally and many respected industry professionals will tell you that they started out as members of Gen Next.

It’s a fun and nurturing community, supported by a framework that encourages members to step-up to be the future leaders of their profession and a voice amongst peers. The group encourages new advisers to actively participate in their profession and deeply understand the issues, opportunities and challenges ahead.

We invite you to accelerate your career join the largest, most professional adviser development program in the country.
