The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 2002 (Act 37 of 2002) (FAIS Act) is very clear on the process that will be followed regarding discovering a prospective policyholder's insurance needs, whether the prospect is altogether new to insurance or an existing policyholder. These requirements apply primarily to intermediaries. While insurers will offer more information about their products, or answer questions, but are unlikely to compare their product with a similar product of their competitors.
