Malaysia's Islamic finance overhaul boosts protection for depositors

VOLTA FINANCE : Announcement of 2nd reconvened EGM

"From my view, it is quite comprehensive. The challenge is to ensure the enforcement, and to make people understand it," Akram added. TAKAFUL The IFSA may also reshape the takaful (Islamic insurance) sector by requiring the separation of life and general business lines, the latter covering property and automobiles. Under the new rules, firms with composite licenses that cover both sectors will have five years to separate the two. Malaysia had 12 direct takaful operators with a combined 19 billion ringgit in assets as of December 2012, central bank data showed.

Your Finance: Advisers who put your interests first

Flaherty's time as finance minister may be over, but any successor faces PM oversight

Industry insiders said devising a rule would be costly and do a disservice to low- and middle-income clients. The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisers, which represents insurance agents who also sell securities, told the SEC that a fiduciary standard would "harm the ability of middle-market investors to obtain financial services and advice." That's because good personalized financial advice isn't cheap. Most independent advisers who are fiduciaries charge their clients a percentage of the assets they manage for them. Anyone with less than $250,000 in investable assets isn't that attractive to a fee-only adviser. Those clients can get free or inexpensive advice from brokers who sell products like mutual funds and insurance policies, but in return those clients end up investing in the products the brokers are being paid to push.

Last week, the SEC closed its comment period

Flaherty has not been shy to intervene in the Canadian economy, loosening mortgage lending rules before being forced to retreat and tighten them multiple times to avert a potential housing market meltdown in Canada. He has repeatedly warned Canadians about the risks of spending too much and saving too little, and broke a key Conservative campaign promise not to tax income trusts. Flaherty has been "a very sound and competent finance minister," argues Ian Lee, assistant professor at Carleton University's Sprott School of Business in Ottawa and a former banker. Lee believes Flaherty has been one of the top three finance ministers over the last 50 years, behind Michael Wilson and Paul Martin, but does not have any huge legacy projects. "He got stronger as the years went by.
