My second submission in relation to the future Code of Conduct for Financial Advice services

In this article I share my second submission to the Code Working Group responsible for the proposed Code of Conduct for Financial Advice services. I reiterate and expand on my original submission, trying to put a strong case for ensuring that high quality advice is widely available to Kiwis, and that there aren’t unnecessary compliance costs associated with providing holistic, strategic advice (rather than limited, product-focused advice).

My submission in relation to the future Code of Conduct for Financial Advice services

In this article I talk briefly about upcoming changes to how financial advisers will be regulated, and the proposed Code of Conduct for Financial Advice services.
