Key Documents

The Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry recommended that the grandfathering arrangements for conflicted remuneration in relation to financial advice provided to retail clients should be removed as soon as is reasonably practicable (see recommendation 2.4).

In its response to the Royal Commission, the Government announced that it would end grandfathering of conflicted remuneration to financial advisers effective from 1 January 2021.

The Exposure Draft removes the grandfathering arrangements for conflicted remuneration and other banned remuneration from 1 January 2021. It also enables the regulations to provide for a scheme under which amounts that would otherwise have been paid as conflicted remuneration are rebated to affected consumers.
