Synchron has published a ready reference book to help advisers understand and implement the FASEA Code of Ethics standards into their practices.
A statement from Synchron says the book, FASEA: Code of Ethics Policy and Procedures, which is authored by its Senior Compliance Officer, Stefanie Georgiades outlines each of the 12 FASEA standards and:
- What each standard requires of advisers
- Examples demonstrating what advisers need to do in order to comply
- And, importantly, examples of what not complying might look like.
Synchron director, Don Trapnell says the company is pleased to publish this “much-needed guide” for advisers.
“It will equip them with the knowledge they need in order to comply with the standards and also provides them with direction on how to apply them in the day-to-day work they do with their clients.”
The company says the book contains case studies relating to each of the standards to demonstrate how they might work in practice. Following each case study is an examination of the issues raised and guidance around how advisers should act in relation to those issues.
Georgiades has been with Synchron’s compliance team for more than five years. She holds a Bachelor of Business from Swinburne University of Technology, a Master of Commerce in Finance from Deakin University and is completing a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) through Deakin University.
