OPTIONAL

‘Unlocking the Code’ Masterclass – Adding value for your clients and building trust in you, their adviser

This masterclass, workshop style, provides you a lens to view your obligations as a financial adviser and take a practical approach to embed changes in advice processes – to ensure better client outcomes and foster their relationship with you – their trusted adviser.

The Duties under the FMC Act and obligations in the Code of Professional Conduct provide all advisers and advice firms an exciting opportunity to review and revamp their business and advice practices in the new licensed regime. The challenge is to turn a new compliance requirement into an effective business-transformation process – one that adds value to your clients and builds trust in you, their adviser.

In a ‘principles-based’ environment some of the pressing questions are;
– How do you actually know your client understands your recommendations?
– Do your client files reflect the diversity and vulnerabilities of your client base?
– If a colleague were to review your files is there clear evidence your advice is suitable for your client?
– Is it totally apparent you’ve placed your client’s needs and interests first and effectively communicated and mitigated any conflicts of interests?

Sign up for this optional masterclass and ensure you understand how to apply the new legislative duties to your business practices.
