Are you up-to-date with all the compliance changes and requirements that may impact your Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL)?
The ever-changing financial services landscape has meant AFSL holders are constantly under the microscope, so it has never been more essential to stay on top of what is happening in the industry and understand the impact of regulatory developments.
The Responsible Manager Forum is designed for existing, new and prospective Responsible Manager audiences, compliance officers, and other senior managers and directors operating within the Australian financial services environment.
Each high-level forum provides participants with a legal, regulatory and advocacy update, and addresses other current topical issues.
A certificate of attendance outlining CPD hours will be awarded at the conclusion of this workshop.

Following a career as a naval officer flying in helicopters and chasing submarines around the oceans, Steve commenced his second career as a financial adviser in 1983, and has been authorised to provide advice continuously until today.
Steve’s management experience is extensive, culminating in 10 years running AFS licensed advice businesses for two separate institutions. In both cases, Steve successfully rebuilt the advice businesses from the ground up – including business structure, service offering, compliance regime, and marketing. Steve’s ‘hands on’ approach in assisting advisers to build their business was integral to the success he achieved.
In 2007 Steve commenced Catalyst Compliance – a boutique compliance services business aimed at supporting small to medium sized AFS licensees and their advisers.
Steve also acts as responsible manager for a number of AFS & Credit licensees as well as providing expert witness opinions regarding the advice process for court matters.
