National Conference 2021

With FASEA’s consultation on their code of ethics guidance recently concluded, FASEA CEO Stephen Glenfield, will provide an update on the outcomes of this consultation and other FASEA news.

Stephen will then be joined by Christina Kalantzis who will use real life scenarios to outline SMSF compliance concerns with fee disclosures, referral arrangements and conflicts. Using these same scenarios, Stephen will then explain the ethical issues that may arise and how advisers should overlay compliance with the FASEA code.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Provide compliant advice when disclosing advice fees;
  • Manage conflicts in line with ASIC guidance and FASEA code;
  • Understand how referral arrangements can be achieved and be conflict free, and;
  • Understand how to strike the advice balance and being FASEA compliant.
