Foreign Exchange Accreditation

Foreign Exchange Accreditation


Advisers who provide advice on foreign exchange must meet training requirements under Regulatory Guide 146 Licensing: Training of financial product advisers (RG 146). Foreign exchange is classed as a Tier 1 product in RG 146.

The Stockbrokers And Financial Advisers Association of Australia’s Foreign Exchange (FX) Accreditation is designed not only for advisers with retail clients, but advisory staff that also deal with wholesale clients – not institutions, but high net worth individuals who would be classed as sophisticated investors and who deal in some of the products that would not normally be traded by retail investors – such as spot transactions, forwards and currency options. The FX Accreditation covers FX markets, FX exchange products, taxation, and compliance.

RG146: This accreditation meets the training requirements under ASIC Regulatory Guide RG146 in specialist knowledge for Foreign Exchange at a Tier 1 level.
