Financial services the ‘biggest circus tent in town’: CPA

In the months following CPA’s entry into financial advice, chief executive Alex Malley has urged the accounting industry to “reclaim its rightful territory of advice”.

Mr Malley says up until 20 years ago, advice was solely the domain of accountants.
“[It was around] then that others came into the profession, into the financial planning area, and as a result, that brought other people into the advice market,” Mr Malley told a recent CPA Australia conference.
