Sydney advice firm has AFSL cancelled

ASIC has cancelled the Australian financial services licence (AFSL) of Sydney-based firm Investment Advisers Alliance.


Investment Advisers Alliance, which has held the licence since January 2013, failed to lodge financial statements and auditor’s reports for four consecutive years, ASIC said.

ASIC deputy chairman Peter Kell said, “The annual lodgement of financial statements and auditor's reports is an important part of a licensee demonstrating it has adequate financial resources to provide the services covered by its licence and to conduct the business lawfully.

“ASIC will act on failures to lodge financial statements, resulting in the suspension or cancellation of the AFS licence.”

The regulator added that it will continue to contact AFSLs that have not lodged audited financial statements and take appropriate action if they fail to lodge these statements.
