Support services provider threesixty is planning to use its experience of dealing with the retail distribution review (RDR) to expand internationally to countries where financial planning is developing or undergoing similar reforms.
The services provider says it has spoken to senior representatives from financial services in the Netherlands and has also had exploratory discussions around exporting its services into the Republic of Ireland and Hong Kong.
It also recently met with the Australian Treasury to input into research into financial services compensation arrangements, and later this year the company's head of consultancy, Phil Billingham, will provide education and training on TCF and RDR to delegates in South Africa.
Billingham (pictured) said: "The world of financial advice and planning is experiencing convergence.
"We are not all on exactly the same path but we are heading for the same point. The UK is seen as closer to this point than most and we need to pass on our experiences, whilst we continue to learn from others."
He added the company would intially seek to work with regulators, trade bodies, professional bodies and support networks in other countries and has no plans to set up any permanent offices abroad at the moment.
Phil Young, managing director of threesixty, said: "It is encouraging to note we are now being invited to contribute into shaping the future by countries who were previously perceived as far more advanced than us.
"Additionally, we are able to talk to and influence parts of the world where there is no real financial planning culture and often very little regulation but there is an appetite to change this."
