Content

The Financial Planning professional must be able to build a deep understanding of their client’s needs, and be able to anticipate issues many clients may not have considered. This unit builds on the technical knowledge acquired in other units, to broaden students’ understanding of the professional skills and knowledge required to manage long-term client relationships, and develop comprehensive understanding of clients’ needs in order to formulate strategies and solutions that are in the client’s best interest.
Drawing on insights from the behavioural sciences, this unit requires students to develop strategies to build trust, communicate the value of advice, and engage clients at each stage of the financial planning process. Students will be introduced to the field of behavioural finance, to develop an understanding client behaviour and factors that influence decision-making. The unit also seeks to provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of the ethical and professional requirements within a financial services context.
