Enhance your learning potential with Asteron Life

At Asteron Life, we understand the important role financial advisers play in helping Australians reach their financial and lifestyle goals. That’s why we’re committed to supporting the professional development of advisers through The Sophisticated Adviser program. 

“The Sophisticated Adviser program offers advisers the very best learning opportunities to help them build their professional expertise, improve customer engagement and run more successful businesses,” explains Daniel Waller, Asteron Life’s Head of Life Intermediaries.

The program gives advisers access to online webinars and face-to-face training options that cover everything from product and technical training, to client engagement and business growth. What’s more, advisers have the flexibility to tailor a study program to suit their own budget, time frame and location preferences.

With the program continually receiving positive feedback and high attendance we can be sure that The Sophisticated Adviser program can cater for a broad range of advisers’ educational needs.  Here are some examples of learning you can undertake through the program:
