How our Partner Planner Program works

FAST Partner Planners are self-employed business owners, committed to providing quality financial planning advice to your clients, with a strong focus on compliance.

Typically a FAST Partner Planner will work with six to ten broker firms to provide financial planning advice to their clients.

This multi-broker model is designed to provide a steady stream of quality referrals from the aligned broker firms to their FAST Partner Planner, supporting their ability to remain active and successful. Most importantly, they will always be available to meet your referred client needs.
