Financial planners. What's happening at Mineral Resources? Graphite versus graphene.

Financial planners
I am a financial adviser. I am in complete agreement with Bruce Brammall (Financial planners don’t make the grade). Sometimes I think he is a bit hard on planners, but on this occasion I could not agree more about his concerns. The findings of ASIC come as no real surprise to me. I see a lot of very poor advice. As a small, independent non-aligned planner, I think there are huge opportunities for us to differentiate ourselves in the market, but then I wonder about that – what about the people who have received poor advice but think it's good? How do you get your point of difference across to them? And they appear to be in the majority! It seems the industry has completed a really good con job on the consumer.

Mineral Resources

I wondered if you knew why Mineral Resources directors were selling down their stock?
