National dealer group Elders Financial Planning has promoted from within for a new role and announced a digital alliance to continually improve its adviser offering.
Elders promoted adviser services co-ordinator Anna Van-Gasteren to national practice development coach for the adviser network.
Elders general manager, Tony Beaven, said Van-Gasteren "will enhance the current support structures with her extensive financial planning, practice management, and paraplanning knowledge."
"Technological, regulatory and legislative changes demand that dealer groups need to continuously adapt and disrupt in order to keep pace with an ever changing environment and Anna's appointment will help us achieve this."
The dealer group has also formed an alliance with SHMarketing & Design and Feedsy in order to increase its digital footprint and adviser network offering.
Beaven stated: "We are conscious of the need to continuously adapt and evolve our current digital and social media offering to the adviser network. This is why we have partnered with Feedsy and SHMarketing & Design, to provide highly affordable, semi-automatic digital web solutions."
Co- Founder of SHMarketing & Design and Feedsy, Steve Holme, said: "Financial advisers still have a chance in 2017 to be leaders in the digital space in 2018 and it's great to see the forward thinking of the Elders team in recognising the changing environment we live in and acting now to help their advisers."
