ASIC is investigating instances of licensees charging for advice that has not been provided. In most cases, the fees have been charged as part of a client’s service agreement with their adviser.

It is probably not a coincidence that the ANZ Bank announced recently that it will be compensating around 8,500 advice clients who did not receive a documented annual review in 2014 despite it being included in the fee they paid.
