Midwinter launches advice tech for students
Midwinter Financial Services announced it has partnered with CQUniversity to offer its technology solutions to students studying financial planning units within courses.
The partnership will see Midwinter’s financial advice software and training modules made available to all CQUniversity students studying financial planning units in the Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Property Studies and other non-business courses from Term 1 2023.
“With adviser numbers continuing to fall across the industry, Midwinter is excited to support the development of future qualified financial advisers by providing access to advice technology during their education,” Stacey Cowan, Head of Sales at Midwinter, said.
“Midwinter’s modules not only allow students to practice and learn new financial planning skills, but also to familiarise themselves with real-life technology as they prepare to enter the workforce and become financial advice professionals.”
“CQUniversity is thrilled about the opportunity this partnership offers to our students,” Dr. Angelique N. McInnes, a lecturer at the university’s College of Business and Law, said.
“The financial services industry is changing fast – and it is now more critical than ever for current and future professionals to understand how technology can help stay compliant and more efficient.”
