Midwinter partners with CQUniversity to roll out advice technology to students
Midwinter’s industry leading software will support students as they prepare for a career in financial advice.
Midwinter Financial Services has today announced a partnership with CQUniversity Australia to provide financial planning software to its students undertaking financial planning units.
As part of the agreement, CQUniversity’s financial planning students will be able to access Midwinter’s financial advice software, as well as training to support the students using the technology.
The digital advice software will be available to students studying a Bachelor of Business, a Bachelor of Accounting, and a Bachelor of Property Studies, as well as other non-business courses with financial planning units.
Stacey Cowan, Head of Sales at Midwinter said, “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.”
“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.”
Dr. Angelique N. McInnes, Lecturer, College of Business and Law at CQUniversity, said, “CQUniversity is thrilled about the opportunity this partnership offers to our students. 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,” Dr. McInnes commented.
Midwinter’s financial advice modules will be available to all CQUniversity students undertaking financial planning units from Term 1 2023 onwards.
