This discussion of the role of risk in reform of Australian financial services law is the fifth in a series of background papers to be released by the Australian Law Reform Commission as part of its Review of the Legislative Framework for Corporations and Financial Services Regulation (‘the Inquiry’).
These background papers are intended to provide a high-level overview of topics of relevance to the Inquiry. Further background papers will be released throughout the duration of the Inquiry, addressing key principles and areas of research that underpin the development of recommendations.
The ALRC is required to publish three Interim Reports during the Inquiry, and these Reports will include specific questions and proposals for public comment. A formal call for submissions will be made on the release of each Interim Report. In the meantime, feedback on the background papers is welcome at any time by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
