There’s a lot of talk around the licensing pathway, and it is getting more complicated than ever for advisers who would prefer to maintain in control of their advice practice.
Advisers will need to prepare their practice in advance of any licence application with all expected policies, processes, and controls in place. While also maintaining a governance system, financial controls and reporting, and ensuring that there are protocols and procedures in place.
We have identified and mapped out:
- At least eight things which will have to be done and in place if you wish to be allowed to continue practicing just as an adviser in the short term
- 15 more things you need to complete before the end of the Transitional Licensing period if you wish to stay in business as an adviser, although not necessarily with your own licence
- And 23 more things you are required to fulfill if you want to be able to successfully apply for your own licence and retain your independence as a business owner by the Transitional Licensing period.
Barry Read, Russell Hutchinson and Tony Vidler have put together a practical webinar in the key decision points and options for New Zealand financial advisers considering their licensing choices.
Through this webinar, you will be presented with neutral arguments. With no promotion of any models or providers. Instead, you will be provided with a genuine strategic approach that gives your adviser business probable options.
During the webinar, we will provide a comprehensive checklist of the various practice management, advice process, and regulatory issues which we expect will be required for full licensing.
