Education of critical importance in our industry
Asteron Life acknowledge those who improve the standard of education in the advice industry.
Financial advisers make a profound difference to people's quality of life and protect their financial future. Finding a trusted adviser that understands you and your financial situation inside-out is one of the most important financial decisions you will ever make. This is why Asteron Life, since 2008, have made it a priority to recognise those individuals and organisations who believe that investing in their knowledge of the industry is of paramount importance. In partnership with the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA), Asteron Life have sponsored the Excellence in Education Award since its inception with 2016 being the ninth consecutive year of involvement.
Asteron Life have long been passionate about excellence in education and the role it plays to help drive a positive consumer perception of the advice profession. Education plays a critical role in the ongoing development of professionalism within our industry and this has never been more important than it is today with financial decisions topping the list of concerns for Australians in 2015.

The award acknowledges the important role financial advisers have in ensuring that Australians have access to quality advice and that the industry remains one in which the level of professionalism is maintained through well-educated, sustainable advice. It also recognises not just the theoretical element of education in building successful businesses, but also the critical part that practical skills play in providing exceptional advice and customer experience which are elements that Asteron Life prides itself on.
