Her address will be the first opportunity for our adviser community to gain the most up-to-date progress report on Professional Standards, FASEA and the implementation of Royal Commission implementations. It is so important that delegates have the opportunity to hear more about the Government’s forward agenda in relation to financial advice first-hand and we are looking forward to her insights.”
