A practical guide to the proposed new regulatory regime for the provision of financial advice.
The Financial Services Legislation Amendment Bill was introduced to Parliament on 3 August 2017 and will create a new regulatory regime for the provision of financial advice in New Zealand.
It's out with AFAs, QFEs and RFAs and in with 'financial advice providers', 'financial advisers' and 'nominated representatives'. The existing prohibition on personalised robo-advice will disappear as will the separate DIMS regime for financial advisers.
The reforms will herald a new licensing regime for anyone giving financial advice and will require all advisers to place the interests of the consumer first.
This practical introductory webinar will review and discuss the Bill and is designed for lawyers and accountants of all qualification levels who want a high level understanding of the proposed reforms.
