A Representative is any person employed or authorized by a Financial Services Provider (FSP) to provide financial advice or services to a client for or on behalf of the FSP. A person rendering clerical, technical, administrative, legal, accounting or other service in a subsidiary or subordinate capacity is not recognized as a representative.
The FAIS Act (Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act) is described as a `market conduct regulation’. This means that it sets minimum standards around the way authorised financial services providers are required to conduct their business activities with clients.
The FAIS Act has two very clear purposes:
- The professionalization of the financial services sector; and
- The protection of consumers.
It regulates the financial services market when giving advice or providing intermediary services to clients. The FAIS Act was enacted in 2002 with the main objective of protecting consumers in relation to financial services regarding regulated products.
