2. What does the “independent financial planner” legal status cover?

The Law of 25 April 2014 on the legal status and supervision of independent financial planners and on the provision of financial planning advice by regulated undertakings aims to regulate activities which consist in providing financial planning advice:

  • by henceforth imposing conditions of access to the profession on all persons who are not currently subject to a status and who intend to make the activity in question their regular business, and by protecting the title of independent financial planner;
  • by laying down rules of conduct applying to independent financial planners and to regulated undertakings providing financial planning advice.
