Midwinter is please to take part in a new initiative called Wicked Problems: Visionary Investors, founded by Evolution Media Group CEO and money educator Vanessa Stoykov, with business media platform ausbiz and financial adviser data and tech platform Adviser Ratings.
Aimed at financial advisers, the investment community and consumers, Wicked Problems: Visionary investors brings together industry experts to discuss some of Australia and the globe’s most wicked finance problems.
The program forms the media vehicle behind a collective of like-minded individuals from the investment community who are deploying billions of dollars into solving problems like climate change, sustainability, accessible financial advice and protectionism.
Many people are not accessing financial advice because of several perceived barriers, whether it’s not being able to afford it or thinking that financial advice is not for them. Since most people who seek financial advice are high-net-worth individuals, there’s a large portion of Australians who are missing out on much-needed advice.
With an unstable economic landscape in a post-pandemic world, access to good financial advice is needed more than ever. Steve Davison, Chief Commercial Officer at Midwinter is pleased to support and participate in this conversation along with Sarah Abood, CEO of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.
“We are pleased to be the foundation partner for the first two episodes which focus on how to make good financial advice more affordable and accessible to Australians,” said Davison. “Over the past few years, declining adviser numbers and increasing input costs have meant most Aussies are essentially priced out of the advice market. Leaning on the proposed changes in the Quality of Advice Review and Midwinter’s digital advice capabilities, we are on a mission to change this by providing advisers with the technology they need to provide affordable advice solutions.”
