To be confirmed
ASIC has found “preparations for systemic issue identification, ownership and reporting is less developed when compared to trustees’ work on other RG 271 requirements”. (refer 21-230MR) Furthermore, ASIC intends to undertake surveillance of compliance with RG 271 in 2022, focusing on systemic issues arising from complaints and what trustees are doing to learn from these.
This one-hour virtual workshop is specifically designed to help funds identify and deal with systemic issues arising from complaints and is being facilitated by the industry’s highly regarded and respected complaints specialists, Jocelyn Furlan (former Chair of the SCT) and Pam McAlister (AFCA).
At the conclusion of the workshop, you will be able to clearly differentiate a systemic issue from an incident, a breach or an opportunity for improvement, and will have a better understanding of how ASIC expects trustees to handle systemic issues arising from complaints.
