Synchron has published a ready reference book to help advisers understand and implement the FASEA Code of Ethics standards into their practices. 

Authored by Synchron Senior Compliance Officer, Stefanie Georgiades, the book – FASEA: Code of Ethics Policy and Procedures, outlines each of the 12 FASEA standards (the Standards), what each Standard requires of advisers, examples demonstrating what advisers need to do in order to comply and, importantly, examples of what not complying might look like. 

Synchron director, Don Trapnell said, “We are very pleased to publish this much-needed guide for advisers. It will equip them with the knowledge they need in order to comply with the Standards and also provides them with direction on how to apply them in the day-to-day work they do with their clients.”

The book contains case studies relating to each of the Standards to demonstrate how they might work in practice. Following each case study is an examination of the issues raised and guidance around how advisers should act in relation to those issues.

Ms Georgiades has been with Synchron’s compliance team for more than five years. She holds a Bachelor of Business from Swinburne University of Technology, a Master of Commerce in Finance from Deakin University and is completing a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) also through Deakin University.
The book is being provided to all Synchron advisers and is also available for purchase for $25 plus postage and handling.
