NEWSLETTER - ELNA RUDMAN BROKERS June 2012
Hard to believe we are nearing the half year mark already!
Just an update on the Insurance Products that we can offer you and other Insurance matters that may be of interest to you - our valued client! Also an opportunity for us to tell you that we appreciate your loyalty and support!
The FAIS Law required all Intermediaries to write Regulatory Exams with a cut off date at 30 June 2012. These exams were to be written by all Key Individuals and Representatives. I can proudly announce that all of us here at Elna Rudman Brokers passed the exams on first time written and that Elna was lucky enough to pass both RE 1 and RE 5 exams with distinction. The exams were to test us on our knowledge of the FAIS law and if we failed to write by 30 June or pass by 30 September it will lead to a suspension as a Financial Intermediary or a Representative who gives Financial advice and/or provides Intermediary Services. The exams were difficult and the pass rate required was 65% for the Key Individual exams and 66% for the Representative exams.
As most of you may know the FAIS OMBUD is there to ensure that you get a fair settlement when you claim. When a claim is repudiated and negotiations with the company fails, it is your right to launch a complaint with the OMBUD for Short-Term/Long Term or the FAIS OMBUD, there are clear instructions on their web pages (that you can easily Google) of how to register a complaint. If the above fails to successfully handle your complaint you can register a complaint with the Financial Services Board (FSB) – it is important to know your rights and we are here to assist you whenever you need us! We have been successful in getting positive results for our clients on five different occasions at the Short-term Ombud.
