As the much-needed homeworking continues, we’ve seen some massive gestures of support from our friends in the financial advice community and a real openness about the impact this situation could have on people’s mental health and wellbeing at this tricky time. 

Last week, we decided to make Advicefront software free to all new and existing users, to aid remote working. It’s been amazing to hear how useful this has been.

But, we felt there was more we could do. Something we love about this industry is how willing people are to help each other out and collectively move the industry forward. So, to make sure this isn’t lost to isolation, we decided to bring financial advice professionals together in our new Slack group, Advicecrowd. It’s a space to share knowledge, discuss industry topics, and most importantly, to connect with others and keep spirits high!

The conversations we’ve had whilst dealing with the global changes and uncertainty brought about by the Coronavirus have been instrumental in lifting our spirits and encouraging us to focus on doing what we can, with what we have. On behalf of the entire Advicefront family, we hope you find the same kind of solace in connecting with other like minded advice professionals.

See you on Slack!

We’ve created a Slack group called Advicecrowd, just for the financial advice community. There are themed channels, from #advicetech to #remote-working, where you can discuss topics, share knowledge and (hopefully) have a bit of fun! To join, click here. It is completely free, and can be accessed in your browser, or through the desktop and mobile apps.
