2021-2023 New Regime

This new regulatory regime is designed to help improve people’s financial resilience by making it easier to access high-quality financial advice that will better prepare them for the future.

And the changes are significant. The regulation of financial advice now falls under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 with the FA Act 2008 now repealed. An important feature of the new regime requires everyone providing retail financial advice to place the interests of their clients first.

Licensing is a two-step process: with existing advisers operating under a transitional licence valid for up to two years and moving to a full licence within that period.
