The fin­an­cial crisis has re­vived the in­terest in the role of fin­an­cial ad­vice and in par­tic­u­lar the stand­ards that fin­an­cial ad­visors should be held to. While fin­an­cial ad­vice is an es­sen­tial part of as­set man­age­ment, poli­cy-­makers are con­cerned about con­flicts of in­terests between fin­an­cial ad­visors and their cli­ents.

The speak­ers shed light on the un­derly­ing factors, in­clud­ing be­ha­vi­oral aspects, and mar­ket struc­ture that in­flu­ence these con­flicts of in­terests and thereby the qual­ity of fin­an­cial ad­vice. In ad­di­tion, they high­light possible solu­tions to deal with the in­cent­ive prob­lems.
