Australian Securities & Investments Commission chairman James Shipton has confirmed that he is seeking additional funding from the Federal Government, after it backtracked on a decision to reduce ASIC’s budget. Shipton also says ASIC will fully utilise the new powers that it has been granted by the government, with the financial services sector to be a particular focus. He says the actions of financial services providers have created a "trust deficit", and the sector must work hard to overcome this.
