The revisions were made to ensure higher value for customers and promote more transparency on benefits, charges and growth rates. These changes have also strengthened controls on commission payout to empower banks, brokers and other distributors to focus on providing high-quality of financial advisory services and to encourage distributors to remain invested in the customer journey throughout the term of plan.
