Let’s get up close and personal in Rotorua!

National Advisers Conference 2018 – it is the time and place to connect with your peers, colleagues and industry leaders, expand your knowledge and explore new ideas.

The Conference will continue to develop the value of advice and the positive role it plays in the lives of New Zealanders.

This year is different – after the economic update, we will kick the Conference off with 3-hour comprehensive Master Classes on Wednesday afternoon for each of the adviser specialities of Lending, Personal Risk and Investment/Financial Planning.

Our Conference programme is packed with International keynote speakers, thought-provoking sessions to inspire you to think about the new world of financial services and more. It’s the financial adviser’s conference you can’t afford to miss in 2018.

It is the perfect forum for personal and professional growth for all financial advisers, regardless of where you are in your career.

“And when it comes to working on the business, it’s especially important to actually physically leave the business and go to a conference, as you have to get beyond your own four office walls to get a fresh perspective on your business or career.” – quote from Michael Kitces – USA

Plus, it’s the school holidays so why not make the most of it and bring the family for the weekend to enjoy all that Rotorua has to offer. Keep an eye out for more information on the Partners Programme we will have available.

We welcome you to join us to get up close and personal at the 2018 National Advisers Conference and we hope to see you there.
