IFA welcomes new commissioner
The Institute of Financial Advisers (IFA) is pleased with the appointment of David Mayhew as the permanent Commissioner to Financial Advisers as this will provide certainty during the transition to regulation.
Mr Mayhew is to return to New Zealand from Britain in January to assume responsibility from temporary commissioner Annabel Cotton.
IFA president Lyn McMorran says the IFA has worked well with Annabel in her short time at the role. “We have a very high level of involvement with the regulators which has been mutually beneficial and we hope that that will continue. We look forward to a smooth transition during the changeover period and are willing to assist in any way.”
The commissioner will oversee the drafting, approval and implementation of a professional Code of Conduct for financial advisers.
“Mr Mayhew has an impressive reputation and we look forward to providing him with an understanding of the New Zealand environment. The aim of the regulation is to provide confidence in seeking financial advice to the NZ consumer and we believe, together with the IFA, the Commission can achieve that.”
