Improving our Digital Environment
The Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI) would like to introduce its stakeholders to the Interim Website.
In a survey conducted in 2021, the FPI website was found to be the key point of interaction and repository, between the member and stakeholder and that of the organization. As such, the Interim Website represents the first stage in ensuring a world standard delivery of communication and interaction between its stakeholders and the FPI product and service offerings. Please note over the coming months the Interim Website will be replaced with a world class fully integrated website bringing a new standard to the member and stakeholder experiences.
