The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) and Financial Executive Women (FEW)
have announced an alliance to advance the progression of women in financial planning.
Commenting on the alliance, FPA CEO Dante De Gori said, “We believe it is vital that we
nurture and grow our profession, by supporting those who commit to high professional
standards, education and ethics as best we can. As part of this, it is also vital that we attract into our profession those who share the same values.”
Mr. De Gori added, “We hope our collaboration with FEW will help foster community, innovation and leadership amongst existing female financial planners, but also encourage more women to choosing financial planning as their profession. Women currently make up 28% of the FPA membership, and only around 20% in the profession, both of which we would like to see increase.
