‘Qualified advisers’ and the fallout of the QAR reforms

In this episode of the ifa Show, host Maja Garaca Djurdjevic is joined by journalist Keith Ford to take a look at the government’s newly announced policy stance on the second and third tranches of the QAR.

The pair discuss everything that has come out of Financial Services Minister Stephen Jones’ Canberra announcement, which was met with disbelief from the advice community.

Listen as they discuss:

  • The new class of “qualified advisers” that institutions will be able to employ – and why that term should change.
  • How the profession has reacted to the announcement.
  • Whether the negative attention on the controversial elements overshadowed the positive.
