The Commonwealth Bank is said to be reviewing its ownership of the Count Financial and Financial Wisdom financial planning groups. An announcement on a possible sale of the two groups could be made in the second half of 2018. The banking royal commission’s revelations have prompted banks to consider their ownership of financial planning groups, amid concern about the potential for conflicts of interests. The CBA paid $A373 million for Count Financial in 2011, while it assumed ownership of Financial Wisdom when it acquired the Colonial Group in 2000.
