Enjoy an award-winning education program with Asteron Life

The Sophisticated Adviser, offered by Asteron Life, provides market-leading adviser education and support, enabling advisers to enrol in an array of workshops, webinars and resources facilitated by leading industry experts and peers.

Asteron Life’s approach to ensuring advisers maintain their education standards was recently recognised at the AFA Life Company of the Year Awards winning the Risk Product Innovation Award.

“Winning the Risk Product Innovation Award for The Sophisticated Adviser program, both celebrates and validates the importance of Asteron Life’s continued support for the professional development of advisers,” says Julio Cagigas, Asteron Life’s National Key Accounts and Services Manager.

With so many participants giving an overall 96 per cent approval rating*, The Sophisticated Adviser program continues to be welcomed and recognised by the financial advice community for helping develop well-rounded advisers. Additionally, an ongoing partnership with Suncorp Learning Campus has facilitated an expanded learning program. This partnership gives advisers access to additional specialist education providers, such as the Australian Institute of Management, Sales ITV, Skillsoft and Kaplan Professional.

The Sophisticated Adviser program continues to offer innovative ideas and quality learning modules across key subject areas. The goal of the program is to support advisers as they continue to expand their skillsets and remain current to meet the needs of clients in an ever-changing industry.

To give all advisers an opportunity to get involved, the program enables participants the flexibility to choose their own subjects of study and complete these subjects in their own time.
