Retirement and financial wellbeing depends on ensuring all Australians can access appropriate, high-quality financial advice. Right? However, aspects of this sector haven’t worked as well as they could. Instead, consumers and advisers are grappling with high costs, a lack of trust and excessive documentation.
For these reasons, there has been a review (Michelle Levy’s Quality of Advice Review, otherwise known as the QAR).
The aim of the review is to improve the accessibility and affordability of quality financial advice. The recommendations were made public in February 2023.
To dive into the QAR are two CPA Australia experts who made submissions and worked closely with government and industry to help find some practical solutions.
