The Association of IFAs (AIFA) has today issued guidance to members on how to fill out last-minute responses to the Retail Distribution Review (RDR).
It says the submission guide will help members that wish to submit their own responses before the consultation deadline on 31 December.
Chris Cummings, director general of AIFA, says: “Although AIFA will be submitting a full and detailed response to the discussion paper, we would like to see a large volume of responses from IFAs.
“A large proportion of our members feel very strongly about some of the FSA’s proposals and this is their opportunity to let the FSA know how they feel.
“We recognise that our members operate in a very busy market therefore have provided them with key topic areas that are important to respond to.
“Members need not respond to all 70 questions in the discussion paper, but still need to make their views clearly known.
“It is important that the FSA hear IFA views of the RDR; we urge all members to spare a few moments of their time to read our guide and respond to the consultation.
“The future of the IFA profession will be determined by the actions we take now.”
