Midwinter fosters adviser growth with CQUniversity partnership

By Penny Pryor

Midwinter Financial Services has announced a partnership with CQUniversity Australia to provide financial planning software to its students undertaking financial planning.

The students will also be able to access training to support the technology. It will be available to students studying a Bachelor of Business, a Bachelor of Accounting, and a Bachelor of Property Studies, as well as other non-business courses with financial planning units.

"With adviser numbers continuing to fall across the industry, Midwinter is excited to support the development of future qualified financial advisers by providing access to advice technology during their education," head of sales at Midwinter, Stacey Cowan, said.

She said the modules would also help familiarise students with real-life technology as they prepare to enter the workforce.

"The financial services industry is changing fast - and it is now more critical than ever for current and future professionals to understand how technology can help stay compliant and more efficient," Lecturer at CQUniversity College of Business and Law Dr. Angelique N. McInnes, said.
