The RG146 Compliance Solution program will provide you the pathway to RG146 Compliance, the level of education required to become a financial adviser to provide financial advice to your clients.
It consists of four modules plus an optional specialist assessment in advising in self-managed super funds (SMSFs). It has been designed to address the competency requirements outlined in the ASIC Regulatory Guide 146 (RG146) for practitioners wishing to provide specialist financial planning advice to their clients in the areas of financial planning, general and life insurance, securities, derivatives, margin lending, managed investments, superannuation and SMSFs.
Superannuation is the centrepiece of Australia’s wealth accumulation industry, and understanding it is at the heart of good financial and retirement planning. As superannuation is a compulsory part of an Australian employee’s remuneration, it is a crucial part of financial planning.
The RG146 Module 4. Superannuation covers the essential components of development, structure and operations of Australia’s retirement income system including the legislation, regulations, taxation and social security regulations governing superannuation.
The self-paced learning option is offered year round and there are no enrolment date restrictions, meaning candidates can enrol any time. CPA Australia strongly advises that candidates have a Year 12 or equivalent comprehension level of language, literacy and numeracy skills in order to undertake this program.
On completion of each module, you must complete an assessment consisting of a written assignment and a telephone role-play scenario. The assessment tasks are designed to enable you to demonstrate your skills and ability against the key areas of competency covered in each module.
You must achieve competency in all of the relevant competency units to be deemed ASIC compliant.
This module builds on Module 1: Financial advice foundation and Module 2: Insurance to provide ASIC RG 146 compliance in the specialist knowledge area of superannuation.
Completion of this module will also meet the pre-requisite requirements to enrol in the Advising in SMSFs assessment for RG146 Compliance in self-managed superannuation funds.
