We spoke to financial advice industry specialist Nerida Cole from Dixon Advisory about the impacts of COVID-19 on the financial wellbeing of Australians, as well as how the crisis has demonstrated the true value of advice.

Speakers from the UK, Hong Kong and Sydney joined us for the FSC’s recent under 35s Circuit event on investing and the influence of climate change on global markets.

End of the financial year is always a busy time for tax managers in financial services. But this year things are substantially harder with the disruption caused by COVID-19.

Three major fiscal safety nets saved many Australians from economic penury in this pandemic – the taxpayer-funded JobKeeper and JobSeeker schemes, and the superannuation early access scheme. 

A lot has been said about advice businesses experiencing a surge in demand for their services as they support clients through matters relating to early access to superannuation, redundancy, life insurance, pension minimums and more. 

This past week the FSC contributed to the national policy debate by releasing our Accelerating Australia’s Economic Recovery report.
