Women in Advice Committee
The Women in Advice Committee is another Count Member initiative. The Committee was formed by a group of female advisers who wanted to provide women who work in financial advice with the support they need to succeed. The Committee has four key areas of focus:
- Education pathways for careers in advice
- Attracting and retaining female clients
The Women in Advice Committee meets quarterly and each year host a professional development function at the the Annual Count Conference.
Sharing via social media
Count has a private and closed Count LinkedIn group that Members use to post questions and share their experience and insights.
The Count Charitable Foundation
In May 2004, the Count Charitable Foundation (CCF), a private ancillary fund, was founded by Count Financial Limited and Joy and Barry Lambert (founder of Count). The CCF was established to support Count Members and Count staff in their philanthropic endeavours and help them make a significant difference in their communities.
Since its inception the Foundation has donated over $6m to charities in Australia and overseas.
