At The Adviser Australian Broking Awards 2017, we were very proud to have been awarded in two categories, Aggregator of the Year and Technology Platform of the Year.
Technology is a key strategic focus for us and the backbone of our business and the businesses of our 2,850+ brokers. AFG has invested over $70m in technology operations and development and we are continually enhancing this technical proposition. We invest in people, platforms, systems and tools to remain an innovative leader in the delivery of high quality, resilient and agile technologies to fuel business growth. Winning Technology Platform of the Year confirms our market-leading position and we look forward to sharing new technology with our brokers all over the country.
We believe that our efforts will go a long way in securing the longevity and helping fuel the growth of our industry. This year, more than ever, we believe this is so as we’ve begun the push on behalf of all brokers, regardless of aggregator, to ensure their voices are heard and their futures are secure. Providing a voice for all brokers via the ASIC forum, a website built for consumers to share their support, regular meetings with regulators and politicians, information sessions open to brokers of any aggregator, the provision of data for the review and regular compliance changes to our systems to ensure our brokers are well ahead of regulatory changes or intervention. The confirmation of our status as Aggregator of the Year fills us with pride and we look forward to doing more for the industry and continuing to support you and all our brokers to the best of our ability.
Thank you to all those who have contacted our staff with messages of support and congratulations, we reiterate that you and all our brokers are largely responsible for our success.
