The latest Part of the Company and Securities Law Journal publishes three interesting articles on a range of subjects. The first article places the Ripoll Committee’s recommendation for a statutory fiduciary duty for financial services licensees in the broader context of regulatory responses to financial adviser conflicts of interest. The second article analyses the future of financial advice reforms and argues that the broader implications of these proposals need to be examined. The final article considers the implications of the United Kingdom Supreme Court decision in Belmont Park Investments Pty Ltd v BNY Corporate Trustee Services Ltd  1 AC 383 for Australian law.
