TAL launches webinar to support financial advisers

TAL has rolled out a new webinar that supports financial advisers with the key areas of underperformance identified in the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) exam.

The webinar is available on TAL Risk Academy, the insurer’s adviser education programme. It provides a framework for learning success and explores the FASEA exam topics that were considered as weaknesses: financial advice regulatory and legal requirements, financial advice construction, and applied ethical and professional reasoning and communication.

“With the release of the June FASEA exam results, FASEA outlined specific areas of weakness which have been displayed by candidates generally. The purpose of TAL’s new webinar is to highlight these areas of weakness and to provide learning materials and practice tests that enable exam candidates to cover these areas appropriately in their exam preparation,” said Beau Riley, the head of licensees and partnerships at TAL.

“The FASEA exam can be a daunting process, and our goal is to support advisers with guidance that enables them to focus their studies and preparation so they can sit the exam with confidence.”

The TAL Risk Academy courses aim to give financial advisers flexible learning options and continued support with their education requirements.

Jake Wilkins, a senior financial adviser at Financial Planning Brisbane, who attended the TAL Risk Academy FASEA MasterClass ahead of sitting his exam earlier this year, commented: “I would like to thank the team at TAL who conducted a two-day intensive MasterClass to help us prepare for this exam. TAL’s guidance and expertise are incredible, and it allowed me to focus my attention in the right areas.

“The FASEA exam was very difficult, but I am incredibly thankful for the process and the advancements it means for the financial advice industry as it journeys to become a recognised profession.”
