We are seeking feedback on proposed guidance that outlines our expectations when financial institutions are distributing products and services through intermediaries.

The Financial Markets (Conduct of Institutions) Amendment Act 2022 (CoFI) introduces a new conduct regime to ensure financial institutions (banks, insurers and non-bank deposit takers) comply with a fair conduct principle to treat consumers fairly.
