Sense prevails at last

04 May 2006 Angelo Coppola

Its always good news when industry players get together for the common good of their constituents.

It appears that a meeting held last week was the starting point of a more holistic approach to dealing with National Treasury on the contractual savings discussion paper, and hopefully the first step in future dealings with regulators and legislators.

The industry bodies that have found some common ground, in alphabetical order include: ABIB (Association of Black Insurance Brokers), BBF (Black Brokers Forum), FPI (Financial Planning Institute), LUASA (The Association of Professional Financial Planners), and SAFSIA (SA Financial Services Intermediaries Association).

Good luck in your future dealings, discussions and negotiations.

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
