For an organisation to have credibility in the mind of the public, it must have independent and transparent regulation of its members. The IFA has effective systems in place through its conduct committees to ensure there is a proper balance between protecting the public interest and the support of IFA members. We are now enhancing this process with the introduction of a new Regulatory Committee.
The objectives of the Regulatory Committee will be to provide a robust, consistent and timely response to breaches of IFA Bye-laws and regulations, Money Laundering Regulations 2017 and other regulations concerned with the general performance of the professional work undertaken by members, affiliates, students and member firms. The Regulatory Committee may refer the matter to the Disciplinary Committee when appropriate.
