The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act is intended to protect consumers as well as financial service providers.
However, the Act is not easy to read and the details may be difficult to grasp for those not used to working with legal documents. This course will unpack the terminology of the Act, the requirements and obligations, updates to the legislation, and the Act’s relationship to related legislation.
Join us for a two-hour webinar in which we will explore the FAIS Act in context.
