2019 SYMPOSIUM

14- 15 November 2019. Ten years in the making, the Gold Standard of Independence is now on the verge of making history.

AS SEEN IN:

THE GOLD STANDARD

Similar to the Heart Foundation’s “Tick” which guides Australians on healthier eating choices, the PIFA Gold Standard of Independence™ guides Australians on how to find financial advisers who practice without incentive and without conflicts.

For the public, this symbol is a beacon for genuinely independent financial advice. For Practising Members, this symbol is evidence they have satisfied the most stringent standard of independence in the profession.

The three stars in the symbol represent the three criteria of the PIFA Gold Standard of Independence™ – no links to products manufacturers, no commissions, and no asset based fees. This is a Gold Standard for financial advice and the symbol represents trust and professionalism.
