SMSF Association Member Guidance – ASIC Consultation Paper 332 – Promoting access to affordable advice for consumers

ASIC’s consultation paper ‘CP 332 Promoting access to affordable advice for consumers‘ seeks information from financial advice industry participants and other stakeholders on impediments to the delivery of good-quality affordable personal advice.

The SMSF Association identifies this consultation paper as an opportunity to address the regulatory burden that often restricts the provision of affordable advice for consumers. As such, we encourage all interested SMSF Association Members to provide their feedback to ASIC, using the online functionality known as ‘Checkbox’; this can be found here.

As guidance, we have extracted several questions from CP 332, outlined in the Member Guidance document below, that we encourage you to focus on if you wish. Additionally, we invite you to join us within your Local Communities for a virtual roundtable discussion, enabling us to collate the feedback and views of our members, and to finalise our own submission on CP 332.
