IFA independence

first_imgThe Financial Services Authority is in the process of adopting a new definition of independent financial advice. It has written to all of the designated professional bodies (DPBs), including the Solicitors Regulation Authority, inviting them to adopt different definitions for their own purposes if they consider this to be appropriate. The background to the FSA’s letter is that its new definition equates independence with the ability to advise on every type of investment and investment wrapper, and some advisers to whom members of the DPBs have habitually referred clients ­in particular stockbrokers ­would cease to be eligible to receive client referrals if the DPBs were to adopt the new FSA definition. What is striking is that the FSA definition of independence no longer accords with the dictionary definition of the term, which is also understood by consumers and which provides the basis for solicitors’ own ethical principles ­namely being free from third-party influence. I would respectfully suggest that this is the definition to which the SRA should revert. Ian Muirhead, director, SIFA, Epsomlast_img read more

Ellery shifts skids

first_imgThe Auckland headquartered forwarder was established in 1969 has a strong background moving heavy and oversize loads for the oil and gas, mining and engineering industries. Ellery OS Project Cargo recently handled gas plant skids from Alberta, Canada, via Galveston, Texas, USA, to Taranaki in New Zealand. According to Scott Ellery, managing director of Ellery OS Project Cargo: “The biggest challenge of this shipment wasn’t only navigating officials in three countries and the ocean itself – but the tight rural roads of Taranaki.” The two skids were delivered and positioned at the Taranaki jobsite on January 11, 2013. www.elleryos.co.nz www.projectcargonetwork.comlast_img
