FAIS

The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS Act) 2002 (Act No. 37 of 2002) came into effect on 15 November 2002. The objective of this legislation is to ensure that financial services are rendered in a professional and responsible manner. This ensures that you, as a client, are protected against unscrupulous selling of financial products and inappropriate advice.
