We are extremely pleased to announce a few exciting changes to the group as we continue to champion insurance education. 

5 years ago, LMI Group began the process of forming a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Being the next logical step in delivering the company’s core values of sharing knowledge and elevating our industry.

 Not long into this process, we met the passionate and likeminded Val Phinn – Managing Director of the Financial Services School. After only a short time together, synergy between our two organisations became quite apparent. A decision quickly was made to enter into a partnership. This would see the two companies working together with a similar goal until Val decided to move into retirement, which occurred on the 9th of July. 

Our new CEO.

With this transition complete, two large decisions were made. The first was to appoint a new CEO. Dr Allan Manning has accepted the position. Allan is looking forward to sharing his passion and knowledge, gained over a lifetime in the insurance industry, with the next generation of Insurance Professionals.

He will not be alone in this endeavour. The entire team of the former Financial Services School is remaining on, to continue delivering the highest standard of insurance education. Something that existing students have come to know us for. 

Different name, same quality.

To bring The Financial Services School more in line with the vision, mission, and culture of LMI Group: the school will be rebranded LMI College ‘of Insurance and Risk’. Above all, you can still expect to see the same high level of training under the new banner. 

In conclusion, we would like to thank our students and the industry for their overwhelming support shown to The Financial Services School and LMI Group since our joining forces in 2015. This has far exceeded our expectations and look forward to working together in elevating our industry.
