From QAR to ASIC, what’s making news this week

In this episode of the ifa Show, host Maja Garaca Djurdjevic is joined by ifa news editor Keith Ford to discuss the latest on the QAR and other regulatory changes affecting the profession.

A year has passed since Minister for Financial Services Stephen Jones released the final report on the Quality of Advice Review, a move that was eagerly awaited by the financial advice community. Despite the release, the journey towards implementing the recommendations has been slow, marked by a series of roundtables and consultations.

In this podcast, Maja and Keith discuss:

  • The likelihood that QAR commitments will be legislated this year.
  • Treasury’s Senate estimates appearance and the “qualified adviser” conundrum.
  • The implications of the ASIC levy increase for advisers, and more.
