Fidelity Life opens door to new advisers

Fidelity Life is seeking applications for the 2024 intake of its Career connect financial adviser training programme, with a new scholarship on offer for aspiring women advisers.

This year, Kaplan Professional joins Career connect as the programme’s education provider, in conjunction with Massey University.

To mark the new partnership Kaplan Professional is funding a new Women in Finance Scholarship, which Fidelity Life chief sales and service officer Bronwyn Kirwan says is the perfect addition to Career connect’s existing six scholarships. 

“Developing a younger, more diverse generation of financial advisers is key to the future of the sector. We’re pleased to say that 50% of our 2023 Career connect participants were female, however, there’s still a lot of work ahead to get more women in the financial advice industry. 

Kaplan Professional chief executive Brian Knight says “Programs like Career connect provide the ideal launchpad for a bright future in financial advice, so we are delighted to collaborate with Fidelity Life on what we believe is a terrific initiative to strengthen New Zealand’s talent pipeline.

“We also remain steadfast in our commitment to encouraging and promoting diversity within the industry, so we are thrilled to be able to provide a scholarship for women in every intake of the program.

An online career evening on March 19 is free to attend for anyone who is interested in learning more about Career connect and pursuing a new career in financial advice. 

In its first year, 2023, 30 aspiring advisers went through the programme to get their NZ Certificate in Financial Services Level 5 and more than half of them have already gone on to find jobs in the financial services sector.

"It’s still early days, but we’re pleased to be doing what we can to boost the stocks of financial advisers.”



The programme runs from May to December 2024 and 30 places are available, including seven reserved exclusively for scholarship recipients.
