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 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.
Giving back to the community is a signpost for professionalism,
