Financial Advice Association Australia logo transparent

The Financial Advice Association Australia (FAAA) was formed in 2023 following the merger of the two leading financial planning bodies in Australia – the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA). With this merger, a new, united professional association that advocates for interests of financial advisers and their clients across the country was created. Today it is the largest association representing financial advisers in Australia.

The Intelligent Financial Group is a proud member of this new group having previously been long standing [more than 20 years ] member of the FPA.

Don’t ever risk your hard-earned money with a financial planner that is not a member of the FAAA.
