I'd be interested to hear what you are seeing out there. You can email your thoughts to philip@tmmonline.nz.

Sticking with the regulation theme TMMOnline brings you an interview with the Minister of Commerce, Kris Faafoi, on the current adviser regulation consultations happening at the moment. It's well worth a watch here.

As always we welcome your feedback and any ideas or tips you'd like us to follow up.

Have a good weekend.
