TAA appoints new Chair
The Advisers Association (TAA), the member-based association for AMP Financial Planning and Hillross Financial Services, announced Bill Beimers was appointed Chair of the association at its Annual General Meeting.
Beimers is the founder and Managing Director of SEQ Advice, a Queensland-based financial advice and services business with a team of financial advisers, tax practitioners and mortgage specialists.
“Bill has served on the TAA board as Vice Chair since 2020 and was also a Board member of TAA’s forerunner, AMPFPA, from 2019,” Neil Macdonald, CEO of TAA, said.
“He is a practising financial adviser with over 23 years’ experience in financial services and has expert knowledge of the industry, having worked from the ground up with financial institutions in the retail banking, insurance and advice sectors.”
Beimers said he was pleased to take over as Chair of TAA, given its rich history dating back to before 1925.
“We will be working with and representing our members and are committed to collaborating with other associations and key stakeholders to ensure Australian consumers can have access to quality, affordable advice, without reducing necessary consumer protections.
“We will also engage with the Government’s Quality Advice Review this year to remove unnecessary red-tape for advisers, enabling them to more efficiently service their clients,” he said.
The Board and CEO of TAA are responsible for the overall management of the association, working in partnership with AMP, AMP Financial Planning and Hillross towards better outcomes for all members and clients.
