The Australian Securities & Investments Commission is seeking a court order to compel AMP to provide access to documents relating to the fees-for-no-service scandal. AMP contends that the transcripts of Clayton Utz’s interviews with AMP employees regarding the scandal are subject to legal professional privilege, which ASIC disputes. The financial services royal commission had been told that Clayton Utz’s report on the scandal had been altered following discussions with key AMP executives.
