On the eve of its national conference, the Financial Services Council (FSC) has launched a new set of standards and guidance for its members, the FSC Code of Conduct.
Developed over two years by FSC members, the Code of Conduct is designed to build the professionalism of the industry by reinforcing the need for good conduct and a strong consumer-focussed culture.
As a living code, FSC members will work to develop best practice and guidance for the Code’s nine standards, which fall into three core objectives covering ethical, communication and consumer outcomes.
