FPA Code of Professional Practice

Our world class Code of Professional Practice is a key component of our Professional Framework that fosters high professional standards and consumer protection. We are dedicated to helping FPA members understand the code, and take seriously circumstances where it has been breached.

FPA Code of Professional Practice

FPA practitioner members are bound by the FPA Code of Professional Practice, which brings together a comprehensive set of ethical principles, practice standards and conduct rules. As the financial planning landscape changes, we update the code to ensure it remains relevant to the regulatory environment at the time.

Understand the Code e-Learning Program

To help FPA members understand the FPA Code of Professional Practice, we have developed a free e-learning program, that also offers 1.5 CPD hours in the area of ‘ethics’. The program takes approximately 90 minutes to complete and you will need Internet Explorer 10 or above, or Google Chrome to launch it.
