HOW WE WERE ESTABLISHED
The coming into effect of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, 2002 (“FAIS Act”) has increased the responsibilities placed on financial advisors in providing clients with financial services.
Financial advisors are now required to comply with a host of additional regulations governed under the FAIS Act and the provisions of the General Code of Conduct for Authorised Financial Services Providers and Representatives. Of particular significance within this framework are the areas of competence and advice.
Financial advisors can only offer advice to clients in their areas of competence and this is achieved by attaining and maintaining an adequate level of knowledge, skills and abilities. Further to this is the appropriateness of advice given to the client in respect of any financial products and whether these fit the client’s risk profile, financial needs and circumstances.
