FAIS ( The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services) AND DOFA (Date of First Appointment)
These are some interesting checks that are designed specifically for the insurance and financial industries. Fortunately for us as consumers it is good to know that companies looking after our finances are making use of such checks in attempts to protect us from the many fraudsters in the market today.
The information provided by a FAIS Comprehensive search is the date of first appointment (DOFA), debarred status, qualifications, experience and regulatory exams achieved by a financial representative.
These checks are used to verify an individual’s name, surname and ID number against the Financial Services Board debarment register.
