FPA members grill CEO over FASEA

FPA chief executive Dante De Gori has responded to members’ questions about the impending education standards and what they will mean for existing advisers.

Mr De Gori took to Twitter on Friday to answer public questions related to FASEA and the incoming adviser education standards.

The questions addressed numerous issues, particularly around the proposed ‘10-year rule’ that will require advisers with relevant degrees to enrol in a new course if their previous degree is a decade or more old.

The CEO and former head of government relations at the FPA laid out the association's position, but stopped short of commenting on Dr Adrian Raftery's prediction, published in ifa, that FASEA might seek to scrap the '10-year rule'.

The FPA-run CFP program was another topic of interest for those asking questions, with some questioning the value of maintaining the designation. 

Dr Adrian Raftery himself was an active participant in the Twitter exchange, posing a number of questions to the FPA CEO.

Adviser and FPA member Jason McFadden challenged Mr De Gori over the FPAs commitment to its members.

In response to this, Mr De Gori told Mr McFadden there was "no need for that language" and asked that he and other individuals asking questions remain respectful and constructive in their comments.

Mr De Gori continued to answer these questions for a full hour, with some members praising him for responding to their questions. 

The twitter exchange follows a number of concerns raised by FPA members to ifa about the FPA's relationship with FASEA and role in the mandatory education regime.
