The FSC has made no secret of the need to reduce the regulatory burden on the financial services industry, particularly financial advice, in its advocacy to Government and regulators.

Tuesday 28 September 2021 was an important milestone for the life insurance industry. 

The recently released Intergenerational Report shows the implications of an ageing population with rising health costs and fewer taxpayers by 2060.

The start date of the Design and Distribution Obligations, or DDO, is rapidly approaching. 

The FSC made a submission on 13 August to Treasury in respect of the Financial Accountability Regime (FAR) draft Bill, a recommendation of the Hayne Royal Commission due to start from 1 July, 2023.

It seems almost every day that a new regulation prescribing another form of disclosure is being piled onto the advice sector.
