Advisers must always act with knowledge, competence and skill in their dealings with clients. Replacing a financial product, even when it is clearly in the client’s interests, can be a higher-risk area for both you and your client.
When it comes to recommending to clients replacement insurance (product or changing an insurance provider) what are the guidelines and processes you follow?
Angi & Andrew will take you through:
Your personal obligations under the new law and code
demonstrate how you give priority to your clients interests, identifying and disclosing your interests
Product and provider selection process
FMA guidelines in the area of replacement business
Documentation so you can defend your recommendations and demonstrate you are meeting your legal obligations
Andrew and Angi will discuss the key points and your duties under the revised Financial Markets Conduct Act and the draft Code Standards - and your personal obligations and how they will impact your advice, especially when recommending replacement insurance.
