Financial Service Providers – Compulsory Registration Law Updated (Webinar)

Webinar 1.25 CPD Hrs
Wed 27 May | 12:00PM - 1:15PM | Your desk or portable device


Law governing the controversial Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR) has been substantially updated. The updated law comes into force on 29 June 2020.

A wide range of financial service providers (FSPs) are required to register on the FSPR including lenders, financial advice providers, custodians and licensed FSPs.

Under the updated law some FSPs are no longer required (or permitted) to register, and some off-shore FSPs with NZ customers are required to register for the first time. 

Learning outcomes

  • Understand who is required to register on the FSPR and who cannot register.
  • Learn how to more rapidly assess whether or not a particular client or party is required to register and the implications of registration (and non-registration).
  • Gain insights into the implications of registration and of failing, or not being able, to register.
  • Gain insights into how the FSPR applies to financial advice providers & financial advisers under new financial advice law.

Who should attend?

Lawyers in private practice at all levels with business clients and clients who engage with financial service providers, in-house lawyers and compliance officers working for financial service providers, financial advisers, including those seeking an update/refresher on this area.
