Pro Bono Financial Advice Network

Helping others in need

About the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network

The Pro Bono Financial Advice Network (PFAN) is an industry wide collaboration that connects financial advisers willing to provide pro bono advice to Australians in times of financial hardship, specifically personal health crisis.

Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) or another progressive neurological disease (PND), or a sudden worsening of symptoms can be a stressful time both emotionally and financially, which is why this service is so important.

Advisers will work with people with MS and other PND in Australia to improve their understanding of financial issues and to help give them peace of mind about their financial future.

Helping those in need to transform their lives

Niall McConville, TAL General Manager of Retail Distribution & Board Director of the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network


This year has been challenging for many Australians, particularly for those suffering financial hardship resulting from a personal health crisis or the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our economy.

In many instances, people faced with health challenges are having to make important financial decisions at an extremely emotional time. Now more than ever, as those economic and financial effects impact increasing numbers of Australians, the support of financial advisers can play an invaluable role in helping people navigate the challenges of 2020 and improve the course of many people’s lives.
