The Financial Services Council (FSC) and its fund management members are leading the transition to a lower emissions economy following the release of guidelines that will help combat climate change and greenwashing.

The Financial Services Council (FSC) announces the appointment of Renato Mota, Chief Executive Officer of Insignia Financial and Alison Telfer, Country Head for Asset Management Australia and New Zealand of UBS Asset Management, as directors to the FSC Board.

The FSC recently published its submission to the Quality of Advice Review that importantly included a response to Treasury’s evaluation of the Life Insurance Framework (LIF).

The FSC continues work on updating the FSC investment management agreement (IMA).

With growing funds under management in ESG themed investment products, ASIC undertook a thematic review into greenwashing, looking into the disclosures of selected managed funds and superannuation funds.

Next month, the new Government will have just ticked over their first 100 days. Early signs, including regular engagement in Canberra by the FSC, indicate the new Government is focused on implementing election commitments.
