Getting to grips with the disclosure regime

From 15 March 2021 the new disclosure regime will require progressive disclosure, and for all Financial Advice Providers (FAPs) and advisers to fully disclose remuneration as well as any conflicts of interest related to the advice they provide.

Strategi has published ‘New Disclosure Requirements for Financial Advice Providers’ to help FAPs and advisers get to grips with the impending changes. This free to download guidance note steps you through the four situations where disclosure must be made under the progressive disclosure regime, and what needs to be disclosed at each stage.

The guidance note also outlines how detailed the disclosure needs to be and whether commission disclosures need to be in dollars or just as a percentage. Strategi Group executive director David Greenslade provides comments around some of the issues with this new full disclosure regime and what firms need to be doing to get ready. Find out more.

See our list of the nine most common errors and compare how you stack up. Read more…
