The FACC is designed to build on ASIC’s existing engagement with the financial advice industry, the statement said.
For instance, the committee will contribute to ASIC’s understanding of issues in the financial advice industry, including those directly impacting on practising advisers.
The FACC will also improve ASIC's capacity to identify, assess and respond to emerging trends in the financial advice industry, the statement said.
ASIC deputy chairman Peter Kell said, “ASIC has extensive engagement with participants in the financial advice sector as well as financial advice industry bodies and consumer organisations.
“We saw benefit in extending our interaction with this sector through the establishment of a committee made up of practising advisers.”
“The establishment of this committee is part of ASIC's ongoing commitment to enhancing its engagement with its stakeholders,” he added.
