"Australia's financial services sector is one of the most regulated in the world, however we continue to see compliance related problems. For digital advice companies to enter this market, and succeed in their objectives, they must raise the bar by demonstrating rock solid compliance processes 100 per cent of the time.

"We believe that incorporating its findings into our operations will improve our service and assist our clients in addressing compliance matters."
