Shares in AMP fell sharply on 17 April after the banking royal commission heard further revelations of misconduct. Jack Regan, AMP’s head of financial advice, told the inquiry of multiple instance in which AMP had misled the Australian Securities & Investments Commission with regard to an investigation into a financial planning scandal. Amongst other things, the inquiry was told that AMP had falsely informed clients that they had been overcharged. Regan also said AMP’s relationship with Clayton Utz raised questions about the impartiality of the law firm’s investigation into the scandal.
