Centuria launches roadshow for independent advisers
Specialist investment manager Centuria Capital will host a series of events in May to assist independent and non-aligned financial advisers with their businesses across the eastern seaboard.
In a statement, Centuria said the 'Make it Happen' events, which will be held in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, are targeted specifically at “non-aligned, independent advisers”.
Centuria's general manager of the investment bonds division, Neil Rogan, said non-aligned advisers rarely get the opportunity to develop skills outside product and technical education unless they have time to take extra courses.
“We count many non-aligned advisers amongst our supporters across both our property and investment bonds divisions, and we felt that we’d like to fill that need and give them something back - a ‘value-add’ that would be harder to acquire in the normal scheme of things,” Mr Rogan said.
“Feedback from our advisers is that getting the best from their people and getting enough time to market their businesses are two of their key challenges.
“So, we found some experts and put together an afternoon event to give them practical and immediately implementable tactics that will have a real impact on their businesses,” he said.
Commenting on the initiative, Centuria Property Funds chief executive Jason Huljich said the events are an opportunity for advisers to network and meet others who face the same challenges.
“If this event proves to be popular, we will hold more of them as long as the non-aligned adviser community benefits from the content in this format,” Mr Huljich said.
The three half-day events are scheduled for May 6, 7 and 13 in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney respectively.
The events will also offer advisers the opportunity to earn CPD points.
