As an industry, we need to continue to build awareness amongst policy makers, the media and consumers of the value of risk advice, supported by evidence and real examples of customers that benefit from the great work that we do.
The action we will be taking will centre on engaging directly with key stakeholders, advocacy, and carrying out research to support the future sustainability of the industry. We will also then arrange a series of events that will elevate the issues of adviser remuneration and the importance of supporting the commission framework and ensuring risk advice remains accessible for as many Australians as possible.
We will provide more information about these in Adviser News in due course.
The value of advice and advisers will be a priority issue for AIA Australia in 2019. We want to deepen our partnership with you, so that we can collectively advocate for the advice industry.
We welcome your feedback on how we can better assist with the efficiency of the provision of advice, how we might improve or simplify our product design and disclosure, and more broadly how we can better support you.
Thank you for all the great work that you do, and the critical role you play in looking after every day Australians.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with your contacts within AIA.
