As of 1 November 2007, insurance intermediaries must have a licence from FI in order to provide advice on fund units to customers. The current opportunity to mediate fund units remains. FI has also imposed new requirements for intermediaries regarding expertise and professional indemnity insurance. This applies, among other things, to a new conscientiousness requirement and an opportunity for waivers from the proficiency test. These regulations also contain examples of how a company can document its verification of employees.
FFFS 2007:23 is only available in Swedish.
