Newpark and IDS have a good newsletter to their advisers on the draft changes to the law, including a proposal for licensing 'product distributors' and labeling 'Financial Advice Representatives' as 'Financial Product Distributors'. Well worth a read. Link.
Newpark has published this shiny book of news. The most attractive thing about it is the sales focus - it reminded me of newsletters sent out by sales teams fifteen to twenty years ago, and I mean that in a good way. Compliance was mentioned, but the dominant theme was about being a financial adviser.
