Episode details

She’s been dubbed the ‘Walking Corporations Act’, and has been on the pulse of Financial Services regulation since the beginning of the AFSL. So, if you’re thinking about self-licensing or if the regulator ever comes knocking, Jaime Lumsden Kelly (@jaimelumsdenkel), Solicitor Director from The Fold Legal ( is who you’ll want to call.

In this episode, Clayton and Jaime discuss what self-licensing is, how it works and everything you need to consider if you’re thinking of going down the independent path. Jaime gives examples of how some Advisers have come unstuck, the risks associated with self-licensing and what she believes is the root cause of conflict between ASIC and Advisers (and how we might fix it).
