Australia’s Affinia Financial Advisers has developed a new tool to help advisers deliver strategic and meaningful life insurance advice between them and clients.

The strategic advice cash flow tool, encompassing a needs analysis and cash flow calculator, is being rolled out across the group as a central part of Affinia’s risk management framework.

Affinia general manager Craig Parker said: "The tool facilitates meaningful conversations between advisers and clients so that the service provided is built around high quality, valuable advice and risk management strategies, not products.

Parker said: "Affinia has developed a risk management framework that defines and unpacks what strategic life insurance advice is. Risk advice practices need to be built on the foundations of providing strategic advice, and our new framework, including the tool, provides the system to do that."
