The number of licensed financial advisers fell another 12 per cent in 2020, taking the total workforce to a new low of 20,674, data released by researcher Adviser Ratings on Monday show.

The research house tipped that adviser numbers will plummet further to 13,000 by 2023, which would represent a 50 per cent decline since before the Hayne royal commission in 2018, which sparked a number of new regulatory requirements for the industry.

The corporate regulator has granted financial advisers a six-month extension on a controversial coronavirus relief reducing paperwork for the troubled industry, as it mulls proposals to avert an affordability crisis.
