Royal commission unveils financial advice agenda

Royal commission unveils financial advice agenda

A number of major financial institutions will be compelled to give evidence to the next round of hearings in the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.


The second round of royal commission hearings will commence on Monday, 16 April and will focus on the conduct of financial advice providers, with institutions and associations well represented among the organisations compelled to appear before the inquiry.

The first topic will be “fees for no service”, reflecting on the cases whereby ASIC has instructed institutions to pay reparations to customers who paid fees for advice that was never provided.

Representatives of AMP and CBA, and their various dealer group subsidiaries, will be required to give evidence on this topic.

The full list of specified appearances for the financial advice hearings can be seen below:
