Our people collaborate, share their expertise and create innovation as we partner with clients to solve complex challenges, empower change, drive disruption and growth. We look for talented people with the potential to make an extraordinary difference for our clients, our firm and our communities.

Our Compliance and Conduct team supports clients to manage regulatory challenges, review effectiveness of their risk and compliance frameworks, and provide clients with deep insights and advise on industry and regulatory best practices.  Our team includes a number of financial advice specialists who work with clients to review and improve the quality of their financial advice, and their ability to comply with their obligations as an AFS licensee.

  • Developing strong relationships with clients, maintaining these relationships after engagement completion and assisting in the achievement of Compliance and Conduct’s business development strategy.
  • Interpreting and assisting clients in the application of regulatory obligations, industry standards and best practice principles including ASIC guidance.
