Professional memberships and affiliations that benefit you.
A member of the Steadfast Group of Brokers, the Association of Financial Advisers and the National Insurance Brokers Association, Insurance Advisory Service strives to reach the highest industry standards. We engage in a process of continual quality improvement and invest heavily in staff training, education and benchmarking.
It’s always good to know that someone who provides a vital service to you is qualified. The staff at Insurance Advisory Service hold a raft of qualifications and significant real life experience. This makes our assessment, management and representation of your interests that much more effective, efficient and professional than less experienced advisers. Our team meets the minimum standards of education set by ASIC, and many have gone on to do higher studies. Importantly, Insurance Advisory Service holds an Australian Financial Services Licence and is licenced as an approved insurance adviser by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
Insurance Advisory Service is a member of the Steadfast Brokers Association, the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) and the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA). Importantly, not all advisers are NIBA, AFA or Steadfast member firms, and membership is exclusive and elite, offered only to those that meet educational standards higher than those required under legislation. As a member of the Steadfast Group of Brokers, NIBA and the AFA, you can rest assured that you are working with an organisation that takes your business, family and individual insurance needs seriously.
Insurance Advisory Service has relationships with insurance companies across Australia and internationally, including Lloyds of London. We have unlimited access to big-name and boutique financial, insurance and superannuation providers and reach into hundreds of products and services. Having worked in the industry for more than 40 years, we have strong relationships with most major providers, which gives clients the best of both worlds – big-firm benefits, industry expertise and strongly held family values.
The Steadfast Insurance Broker network is a group of highly professional, carefully selected experts with a proven business acumen. There is a stringent acceptance criterion when applying to be a Steadfast Broker and an ongoing quality assurance review program once a member.

About the Association of Financial Advisers (AFA)
The Association of Financial Advisers has a 67 year history of representing the needs of advisers and supporting the value of financial advice to change people’s lives. Advocating a professional pathway for advisers to reach their pinnacle aspirations and become a ‘Trusted Adviser’, the AFA lights the way for best practice management.
NIBA is the peak body of the insurance broking profession in Australia and represents around 360 member firms and more than 2000 individual Qualified Practising Insurance Brokers (QPIBs) throughout Australia. In total NIBA represents an estimated 90% of all insurance brokers in Australia.
AIOFP is the Peak Body for Independently Owned Financial Advisers in Australia. Being an independently owned financial advisor means we are not owned, fully or partially, by any financial institutions or banks. We believe this gives us the best opportunity to provide our clients with the widest range of options when considering their investments. Find out more.
