2018 Conference Theme

Ethics at Heart, Growth on Mind!

Growth is the ultimate measure of one’s success and is also essential for survival. After years of hard work, in the last couple of years, financial advisors in India have been witnessing a huge growth in both – inflow of clients and mutual fund assets. It’s a reward which was long due. The question now in front of us is how do we make this growth sustainable and continuous. A growth which is not dependent on market highs, government policies and performance of other asset classes.

Ethical & professional conduct by a financial advisor (however boring it may sound), is the ultimate foundation to a long-term and sustainable growth of his/her practice. Principles of ethics generally prescribed by professional bodies and regulators like “client-centricity, integrity, objectivity, professionalism, competence, fairness, confidentiality, diligence” should not just remain on paper but should consciously be engraved into day-to-day functioning and dealing with clients.

Network FP National 2018 with the theme “Ethics at Heart, Growth on Mind” will encourage & guide its members and delegates in imbibing ethical practices which will help them build a solid foundation for sustainable growth. The conference will focus on Growing Your Practice in the right way. A growth which is not dependent on external factors but based on our inherent strengths and value proposition!
