Contemporary Issues in Financial Planning (3215AFE)

This course enables students to apply their prior studies to real-world situations in financial planning. The course addresses contemporary issues encountered by a financial planner, requiring students to work in teams to research issues and develop practical solutions. Students are exposed to Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and Problem Based Learning (PBL) methods throughout the course. Assessment may include oral presentations, group participation and written submissions. Contemporary issues include, but are not limited to: ethical standards; regulation of the profession; strategic issues such as fee for service versus commission service structures and financial planner conduct under the ASIC Act 2001. The aim of the course is to develop students' generic skills such as research, analytical, communication and problem-solving skills and improve student self-efficacy in tackling real life problems, thereby facilitating a smoother transition into the financial planning profession.
