QAR bill and advisers as a political football

In this episode of the ifa Show, host Maja Garaca Djurdjevic is joined by ifa news editor Keith Ford to discuss the first bill coming out of the Quality of Advice Review and the advice profession becoming a hot-button political issue.

With concerns swirling around the timeline for implementation, the Coalition has come out swinging, calling the drafting of the bill an “embarrassing blunder”. However, given the efforts of the previous government, is it a case of the right message but the wrong messenger?

In this podcast, Maja and Keith discuss:

  • Criticisms of the government’s implementation of the legislation and how it positions the advice profession politically.
  • Whether there will be delays in its passage through Parliament and if more legislation will be tabled this year.
  • The concerns that advice associations have raised.
