MPs behind RDR debate to join advisers for Q&A

The MPs behind last week’s Parliamentary debate on the RDR are appearing at a question and answer session for IFAs later this month.

Tory MPs Harriett Baldwin and Mark Garnier say they want to hear more views from IFAs.

Garnier, who is a member of the Treasury select committee, says: “It is interesting how many people have come to talk to me about the debate. It certainly raised interest, not just in the chamber but also outside, where MPs were watching it on TV. This event gives us an opportunity to hear from the investment community. Politicians must be as accessible as possible and this is a good way of doing that.”

The session is part of an RDR seminar being held by IFA portal on December 20 at M&G’s London office.

Lansons Communications director of regulatory consulting Richard Hobbs, M&G income multi-asset fund manager Ste-ven Andrew, 4 Pump Court barrister Peter Hamilton and Adv-iser Alliance director Alan Lakey will also be speaking at the event.

Panancea chief executive Derek Bradley says: “The RDR has divided the IFA community into pro and anti-RDR camps, which is a great shame. This event will allow a wide audience to understand more about the relationship the regulator has, or perhaps should have, with Parliament.”
