Welcome

The ALRC is tasked with unwinding complex and unwieldy financial services regulation, with its interim reports indicating it will do so without fear or favour. We sit down with the people who will shape the industry, discuss the interplay between legislative architecture and legacy regulation, and the effect changes to both will have on the advice ecosystem.

Two licensing industry behemoths share their vision for the future of the industry and reflect on how they are building scale in a tailored way.

Afternoon tea

What will happen if insurance advice commissions are cut- what are the insurers thinking regarding a distribution structure with advisers and how are clients going to get insurance? Are insurers looking to make products that don’t include commissions for those advisers who don’t want them at all.
Mental health issues in the advice industry have become more prevalent in the wake of the Royal Commission and the pandemic. We ask what responsibility licensees have in taking care of advisers' mental health and what role licensees have in the mental health of their advisers. Presenters to be announced soon.

Welcome

CoreData presents its latest research on licensee satisfaction; where advisers score licensees on what they’re doing well and what the need to do better.
For the last 20 years the industry has been trying to answer the basic question – how can we provide advice to more Australians? We’ve tried product innovation and greater regulation but in 2022, the gaps still remain. Is this industry ready for disruption? Are there innovators that can take on the challenge and spur real change in the industry to solve this need? We look at the way businesses are run, how technology is used and how we can potentially change the industry to capitalise on efficiencies and, by doing so, advise more Australians.
10:30am - 11:00am

Morning tea
