This November, Bennett & Philp’s newly birthed finance team will be hosting their inaugural Private Lenders Forum, bringing together privately-owned mortgage funds, finance brokers, financial advisers and investors.
Bennett & Philp is quickly raising its profile as legal advisers to the lending industry offering both documentation solution packages, debt recovery work and, of course, a wealth of legal knowledge for advice on matters of credit law.
Our Private Lenders Forum will seek to connect the firm’s private lender clients with finance brokers, financial advisers and prospective investors in a great networking opportunity for members of this industry.
Directors of our finance team, Nadia Sabaini and Charlie Young, will be providing an informative presentation on the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA), the newly established mandatory external dispute resolution scheme for holders of an Australian Credit Licence or Australian Financial Services Licence. This presentation will provide key information on the role of AFCA, its jurisdiction, the complaints process and some examples of recent AFCA decisions. We will also touch on how this impacts on business loans, which have traditionally been largely unregulated, but which now will fall under AFCA’s jurisdictional scope in some cases.
If you are engaged in the finance industry and wish to know more about this event or Bennett & Philp’s capability in this area of law, get in touch today.
