PIFA PRESENTS:

Symposium 2022 November 17th & 18th

In mid to late November each year, the members of the Profession of Independent Financial Advisers, the financial advice community, and other stakeholders come together from all over the country to PIFA’s Symposium for the opportunity to rub shoulders, network and take home unique and thought-leading content delivered by passionate and engaging speakers.

 This year, at PIFA’s 2022 national event, ‘Reuniting Advisers’, we celebrate the end of two years of ‘global conference lockdown’ at the landmark Ovolo Nishi hotel, in Canberra’s New Acton precinct.

 Financial Advisers, their support teams, and industry stakeholders are all invited to join us at this year’s event to enjoy the strong sense of community and comradeship we enjoy as supporters of the concept of the
Gold Standard of IndependenceTM.

An exciting line-up of speaker to be announced very soon!

Venue Details

The chosen venue for the 2022 PIFA Annual National Symposium is the Ovolo Nishi Hotel in the New Acton precinct in Canberra.
