RE exam (including re5 meaning)
The regulatory examinations (RE Exams) are not unique to South Africa. It is accepted international practice and standard to set professional examinations for professions. The purpose of the regulatory examination is to set a minimum standard in terms of the knowledge and understanding regarding the role and responsibilities of a representative and a key individual under the FAIS Act. The RE Exams are compulsory for everyone rendering financial services to clients.
Both the RE5 and RE1 are once-off Level One exams. RE5 is for Representatives and RE1 for Key Individuals. Bear in mind that these exam tests your knowledge about the laws applicable to the provision of financial advice and rendering of intermediary services. The RE5 questions are based on very specific qualifying criteria set out in the FSCA (Financial Services Conduct Authority) preparation guide. Please make sure that you first read the FSCA's Preparation Guide to make sure you follow the right process in preparing. Fully updated resources are available for those requiring access to the legislation applicable to the regulatory examinations.
In South Africa RE Exams are also known as FAIS Exams (FAIS stands for Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services). The learners who are required to write FAIS exams are people who want to work in the banking and insurance sector or employees (known as representatives) who already work in the banking and insurance sector. People who provide advice and/or render intermediary services to bank or insurance clients are known as representatives. Therefore, the re5 banking jobs and/or insurance work positions for people who need to write re5 exams are mainly; Sales Consultants, Client Services Consultants, Underwriters, Claims Negotiators, Brokers, Broker Consultants, Team Leaders, Managers, Key Individuals and Sole Proprietors. The re5 requirements apply to positions or re5 jobs in different levels of seniority, therefore there is no specific re5 salary. The re5 qualification is a requirement for entry level jobs as well as senior positions in the Financial Services Sector (banks and insurance companies).
