RG105 Responsible Manager Nomination: Option 2 Individual Assessment

Are you being nominated as a Responsible Manager under your AFSL? Do you have five years relevant experience within the past eight years? 

Under RG105 Responsible Manager Nomination Option 2, ASIC requires that nominated Responsible Managers be individually assessed by an authorised assessor as having relevant knowledge equivalent to a diploma. This means assessment of a person’s capability to undertake their current duties, taking into account their previous work experience.

This assessment is conducted by interview. Before the interview you will receive a briefing document which sets the context for the assessment and details the issues which will be covered.

If you have a relevant university degree and three years relevant experience please refer to Option 3.

As this assessment is conducted within the context of the business and the team of Responsible Managers, we require the following documentation.

  • Business Description (A5) core proof for the licence
  • ASIC authorisations under the licence
  • Organisational Competence (B1) core proof. If this is not available, then a detailed CV of each person who is seeking to become a RM

On receipt of the documentation, we provide a Proposal detailing the process, timeframe and fees.

On successful completion of the assessment, you will receive a Certificate of Attainment confirming that you have satisfied, via Option 2 in RG105, the requirements in respect of the financial services detailed in your AFS licence.

What is an Individual Assessment?

Individual assessment means an assessment of a person’s capability to undertake their current duties, taking into account their previous work experience. Individual assessment must be carried out by an authorised assessor.

Hello compliance, my new friend

Compliance is not a role for the quiet ones.

Quite often it’s perceived as a separate function that needs to be deferred to from time to time. On other occasions, it’s considered an unfortunate but necessary intrusion into day-to-day activity. In a climate of regulatory change, the Royal Commission, and customers generally scrutinising every company they deal with, the importance of compliance cannot be underestimated.

How do you solve a problem like ethical misconduct?

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would argue that the increased focus on ethics and professionalism in financial services is a bad thing. But, can ethics be taught? And if so, is teaching ethics enough to protect consumers?
