FASEA CEO Stephen Glenfield to make first public address at FPA Congress in Sydney

The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) is delighted to confirm Stephen Glenfield, CEO of the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA), is addressing delegates at the FPA Professionals Congress at the International Convention Centre (ICC) on Thursday 22 November 2018 from 9am.

Notably, it will be his first public address since assuming the post of FASEA CEO in June.

Mr Glenfield will be on stage to discuss the upcoming changes to the education and professional standards framework for financial planners.

Commenting on Mr Glenfield’s choice to make his first public address at the FPA Congress, FPA CEO, Dante De Gori CFP® said: “This is a powerful opportunity for delegates to hear direct from the CEO of FASEA for the first time about issues we know are weighing on their minds, such as mandatory education and training requirements, financial planner examination, and the formation of a code of ethics for all advisers.

“As we prepare for FASEA to announce the final professional and education standards framework, one thing is for sure – the financial planning profession is at a pivotal moment. We look forward to Mr Glenfield providing more clarity on the new standards, so we can work together to the advantage of all Australians.”

The FPA has previously published a summary of its key recommendations for each area of the FASEA framework, and has also made copies of its full submissions available on the FPA website. As FASEA begins to confirm each of the standards for the adviser framework, the FPA is focused on developing resources for members to help them navigate the new landscape.
