FASEA regulatory body

FASEA lacks IFA voices, say critics

Chris Morcom, Hewison Private Wealth’s Director & Private Client Adviser, contributes his somewhat contentious viewpoint to the discussions around the board members of FASEA (the government’s new financial services regulatory body) in ‘Independent Financial Adviser – ifa’ magazine.

“Independent and non-aligned advisers have questioned whether the government’s Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority can truly represent their interests given its board membership.”

But Chris Morcom disagrees – “I think it’s an independent, secondary body with a clearly set agenda – to raise minimum standards – and if people don’t like it then bad luck,” he said. “Any concerns around the board having big-end-of-town bias or something, don’t have any foundation.” Click to read ifa magazine article.
