Improve registration check for investors: FAIR Canada

Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Ontario task force looks to boost industry competition On national Check Registration Day, the Canadian Foundation for Advancement of Investor Rights (FAIR Canada) is calling on Canadian regulators to improve investor access to registration information. FAIR Canada said Tuesday that it fully supports the Canadian Securities Administrators’ (CSA) initiative to encourage consumers to check the registration of any firm or individual selling securities or offering investment advice. However, in an open letter to the CSA, it calls upon the provincial regulators to improve the system for examining registration, and other background information. Related news U.S. groups aim to blaze trail to T+1 settlement cycle “We do not believe that regulators appreciate the difficulty that consumers encounter in conducting a full and proper registration check using the current system,” it says, noting that the current system is very complicated and necessitates the search of several databases. It also requires the consumer to know the registered name of the firm, although this may not be the business name the consumer knows, it notes. Additionally, FAIR Canada questions the CSA’s assertion that “registration status or category is more important than a title”; noting that it does not believe that the average investor knows enough about registration categories to understand whether a firm or individual is selling investments that they are qualified to sell, or to provide advice. The investor advocacy group suggests that regulators “need to provide a single, national comprehensive background check that Canadians can easily use to check the background, registration status, proficiency and disciplinary history of registrants.” It says this system should include information from the self-regulatory organizations, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) and Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA). And, it points to the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s (FINRA) BrokerCheck and IIROC’s AdvisorReport as more comprehensive and accessible databases. “We recommend that Canadian regulators look to these systems as examples,” it says; adding that they should also consult with investors to inform the design of such a system. “The provision of a simpler, more user-friendly interface for consumers to check the registration of any person or firm who sells securities or offers investment advice will assist consumers in performing the necessary checks to ensure that the firm or individual is appropriately registered,” it says. “We believe that Canadian securities regulators must provide an accessible and user-friendly system in the interests of investor protection.” Keywords Registration,  Investor protectionCompanies Canadian Securities Administrators, FAIR Canada Biden’s pick for SEC flags trading-app gimmicks for scrutiny James Langton read more

He said he was thrilled to come to the assistance of Jamaica in this way.The professor has expressed a willingness to train a Jamaican to undertake restoration at the most sophisticated levels.Minister Grange thanked Ambassador Silva for what she termed, “this passionate cultural and artistic exchange.” She said the relationship between Jamaica and Spain was not based solely on the tourism industry but there was also a cultural relationship built on mutual respect and admiration.According to the Minister, both Jamaica and Spain, “punch above their weight in culture – in music, art, dance, storytelling and in general a creative approach to life that is evident in all of their citizens.”“De Lawd is My Shepherd” was acquired by the Institute of Jamaica and was one of a group of paintings and sculpture transferred to the National Gallery on its establishment in 1974. The painter and sculptor Osmond Watson, described as a defining figure in post-Independence Jamaican art, died in 2005 at the age of 71. Advertisementslast_img read more

House Begins Debate on Sexual Offences Act

first_imgRelatedHouse Begins Debate on Sexual Offences Act RelatedHouse Begins Debate on Sexual Offences Act House Begins Debate on Sexual Offences Act ParliamentJanuary 29, 2009 RelatedHouse Begins Debate on Sexual Offences Actcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Debate on the Sexual Offences Act 2008, which seeks to bring under one umbrella, the various laws relating to rape, incest and other sexual offences, began in the House of Representatives yesterday (Jan. 27).The Bill repeals the Incest (Punishment) Act and several provisions of the Offences Against the Person Act relating to rape and other sex crimes.Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, who opened the debate, stated that the legislation is one that has been “anxiously awaited, strenuously advocated for and extensively deliberate on.”“This Bill has been long in coming, it actually commenced in 1995 when separate Bills seeking to amend the Offences Against the Person Act and the Incest (Punishment) Act were brought to Parliament. They sought to expand the scope and the circumstances in which rape was committed,” Mr. Golding said.According to the Memorandum of Objects and Reasons of the Act, the Bill provides for a statutory definition of rape.“In this new Bill, we have sought to put beyond any doubt, any ambiguity about what sexual intercourse is,” Mr Golding stated. “So many times, persons were charged for rape and … were acquitted because people were able to find a way through this ambiguity, when a grievous assault had, in fact, been committed against a person. Because of the lack of clarity in the law, juries were reluctant to hand down guilty verdicts and judges might have been constrained to give certain directions to the jury because of what the law provided,” he explained.Other areas covered in the Bill include martial rape, specifying the circumstances in which such rape may be committed.Mr. Golding said that caution had to be exercised to avoid abuse of the law, especially in cases where relationships become turbulent and “perhaps, for a moment, there are feelings of vindictiveness that can find their expression in abusing a provision. Care had to be taken to ensure that marital rape was confined to particular circumstances.”According to the Bill, a husband commits the offence of rape against his wife, if he has sexual intercourse with his wife without her consent, and knowing that she does not consent to sexual intercourse, or recklessly not caring whether or not she consents.The Act also provides for the establishment of a Sex Offenders Registry, to be maintained by the Commissioner of Corrections, which will contain a list of sex offenders, to be known as the Offenders Register.The register will record every sexual offence conviction and released convicts are required to report in person, within three days of release, to the Registry. “You have to report to the Registry every time you leave the island. If you are changing your address, you have to report to the Registry within 14 days of change of address and in any case, you have to report to the Registry at least once a year and this is mandatory,” Mr. Golding told the House.Meanwhile, in her comments, Leader of the Opposition, Portia Simpson Miller, expressed support for the provisions to the Bill.“The outcomes represented in this Bill, represent a continuing journey and they have come about as a result of the selflessness of several individuals, various groups and institutions stretching back to the early 1990s,” Mrs. Simpson Miller said.Debate on the legislation will continue next Tuesday (Feb. 3) in the House of Representatives.

Less than half of new units meeting city affordability rules

first_imgHomeNewsLess than half of new units meeting city affordability rules May. 14, 2018 at 11:00 amNewsLess than half of new units meeting city affordability rulesMatthew Hall3 years agodaily pressNewsSanta Monicasanta monica daily presssanta monica news Santa Monica has failed to meet its own affordable housing goals for the third consecutive year, building less than half of the aimed for affordable units.According to a report on Propositions R and I presented to the city last week, only 13 percent of the residences built last year were considered affordable. The City Charter requires 30 percent of new construction be affordable but developers have failed to meet that measurement for several years.The annual report measures the number of housing units completed, in construction and approved in a given year. While the charter only governs units completed, staff said the additional data shows what’s likely to happen down the line and helps account for the uneven pace of construction over the years.This year 100 residences were completed (13 affordable/13 percent), 586 units were under construction (118 affordable/20 percent) and 386 were approved (70 affordable/18 percent). In total the 16/17 year tracked 1,072 units (201 affordable/19 percent).The report tracks three stats, the number of affordable units created, compliance with affordability requirements by tenants and limits on the number of units the City can help finance. While the first measure fell short, affordability requirements are at a 99 percent compliance rate and the City was within its funding limits.Proposition R was passed by local voters in 1990 as an amendment to the City Charter. It requires thirty percent of all multifamily housing completed in each fiscal year be affordable to and occupied by low- and moderate-income households. Of that housing, at least one-half of the total affordable housing completed be affordable for and occupied by low-income households. The measurement is taken citywide and the charter doesn’t mandate construction on a project-by-project basis. Instead, several programs are in place to encourage the development of affordable housing including some requirements on specific projects, city-wide development standards and fiscal support for affordable housing from the City.The terms of the charter could be met by a 100 percent affordable housing project offsetting for-profit development that had less than 30 percent of their units designated affordable but the passage of the Downtown Community Plan changed the rules for some projects.According to the DCP projects in the Downtown must set aside up to 35 percent of their total units as affordable housing depending on the size and location of the project. Under the rules, projects of less than 50 feet have a 20 percent requirement for onsite housing and 25 percent for offsite. The percentages increase by one percent per two foot in height and any project between 70 – 84 feet have to provide 30 percent onsite or 35 percent offsite.Developers have the option to building housing on site as part of their project, build affordable housing offsite in a standalone development, pay fees in lieu of construction or donate land to the City or a nonprofit that builds affordable housing.In Fiscal Year 16/17, eight developments were completed. Four developments provided a total of 13 affordable residences while the rest paid a combined $1,247,872 in fees.This is the third consecutive year housing production has failed to meet the goal, a situation staff attribute to a lack of funding. According to the report, the primary problem is the loss of Redevelopment money when voters chose to dissolve local Redevelopment Agencies in 2012.“Without City funding, meeting the requirements of Proposition R has been a challenge, as nearly two-thirds of the affordable housing constructed in the past 23 years was funded with loans from City housing trust funds,” said the report.The Charter has no penalties for failing to meet the housing goals but does mandate Council should take action to meet the provisions in the future.According to the report, City Hall is attempting to fill the funding gap with property tax revenue ($1.2 million per year) that previously went to the redevelopment agency, one time money from land sales and profit participation agreements, repayment of loans made to the now-defunct redevelopment agency and an increase in the Transaction and Use Tax (TUT) by one-half percent, half of which (estimated at $8 million per year) is dedicated to affordable housing.Staff said the current shortfalls are the tail end of the crisis caused by eliminating redevelopment money and the new funding sources should cover the gap for several years allowing more affordable housing to be built in the coming years.According to the report, about 38 percent of all housing built since adopting Proposition R meet the affordability [email protected] Tags :daily pressNewsSanta Monicasanta monica daily presssanta monica newsshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentNew Chief seeks to hire more officers to combat rising crime ratePolice investigating a pair of gun crimesYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall10 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson21 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter21 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor21 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press21 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press21 hours agolast_img read more

India’s RCom, Aircel to close merger in July – report

first_img Asia Tags Joseph Waring Previous ArticleConsistel nears $1B funding goal for Singapore’s 4th mobile licenceNext ArticleVodafone and Afrimax to bring 4G to Zambia HomeAsiaNews India’s RCom, Aircel to close merger in July – report India adds detail on network equipment restrictions WhatsApp takes more heat in India India’s fourth largest operator Reliance Communications (RCom) and smaller rival Aircel, which have been in merger talks since December, reportedly will close the deal within the next month, completing the country’s first merger between local players.The two operators are finalising the commercial and legal terms, the Economic Times reported. RCom and Aircel’s majority owner Maxis reportedly agreed earlier in the year to a 50:50 ownership structure if a deal was reached. The two operators last month extended the exclusivity period for talks by 30 days to 22 June, following “substantial progress”.A merger would give the joint entity about 188 million mobile connections, pushing it ahead of current number three Idea Cellular, which has nearly 174 million connections, but slightly behind number two Vodafone India with 197 million. Market leader Bharti Airtel has about 250 million connections. RCom has nearly a 10 per cent market share, while Aircel has an 8.5 per cent share, according to GSMA Intelligence.RCom is expected to spin off its wireless unit and then merge it with Aircel into a separate entity that will operate under a new brand name and not be listed for the first few years, the Times reported. RCom’s tower and overseas arms would remain part of the company.According to the Times, RCom and Aircel will each transfer INR14 billion ($208 million) of their debt into the wireless entity. Russia’s Sistema will hold 10 per cent in the listed RCom (RCom last year also struck a deal to acquire Sistema Shyam Teleservices, for about $690 million).The Aircel merger will give RCom an additional 89 million customers and INR15 billion in annual revenue.As part of a raft of cross-operator deals since the regulator eased spectrum trading and sharing rules last year, RCom and mobile newcomer Reliance Jio in January finalised a spectrum sharing and trading alliance that will see RCom sell 800MHz spectrum in nine regions to Jio and both share bandwidth in the same band in 17 service areas.In April Aircel agreed to sell Airtel 4G spectrum in eight service regions for INR35 billion, which will give it a nationwide 4G footprint to match Jio’s pan-India coverage. The sale will enable Aircel to reduce its INR180 billion debt by about INR40 billion ahead of its planned merger with RCom.center_img India to shun China vendors in 5G trials Author Joseph Waring joins Mobile World Live as the Asia editor for its new Asia channel.

News / Solid half-year result, ‘but don’t let’s get carried away’, says Hapag-Lloyd chief

first_img© Klodien Despite the pandemic, Hapag-Lloyd recorded a net profit of $287m in the second quarter of the year. This compares with a $56m profit for the same period of 2019.And for the half-year, the carrier reported a net profit of $314m, versus $165m last year, a 90% jump in profitability.At ebit level for the first half, there was an improvement of 28%, to $563m.Chief executive Rolf Habben Jansen said the group had produced “a very solid half-year result, despite the coronavirus crisis”. By Mike Wackett 14/08/2020center_img While transport volume fell year-on-year by 3.5% in H1 to 5.76m teu and by 11% in Q2, revenue slipped just 0.6% for the six-month period to $7bn, as the average freight rate across its tradelanes was up 3.1%, to $1,104 per teu.But Mr Habben Jansen added: “We are still very cautious. It’s very easy to get carried away by a couple of weeks of good bookings, and we would be very naïve to assume that we are through the pandemic.”He said markets were still “very unstable”, and that the carrier was seeing huge booking volatility from week to week.“We will keep a close eye on the Covid-19 pandemic and flexibly react to market changes. On the whole, the pandemic is and will remain a major source of uncertainty for the entire logistics industry,” he added.Surprisingly, Hapag-Lloyd’s biggest tradelane, Latin America, recorded a 1.6% year-on-year increase in volumes for the half-year, to 1.41m teu, however liftings slumped by 6.4% in Q2 as the pandemic raged through Latin America.On the transpacific, liftings were down 5.7% to 890,000 teu, but revenue decreased by a modest 3% reflecting higher freight rates.From Asia to Europe, Hapag-Lloyd carried 9.8% less volume than in the previous H1 period, at 1.1m teu, including a 15.3% downturn in Q2. Again the carrier’s revenue on the route held up well, dipping only 5% on the previous year.Mr Habben Jansen said demand was “stronger than we thought” for Q3 and expected capacity reductions to be in the “middle single-digit” range.He did, however, identify the transatlantic tradelane as suffering a “significant impact on volumes” due to Covid-19, and said he expected current capacity adjustments measures would be continued through the quarter.Although Hapag-Lloyd expects global container volumes will contract by some 7% this year, Mr Habben Jansen pledged that the carrier would not look to grow its market share in the downturn, maintaining the group ethos of “profitability over market share”.Hapag-Lloyd said it was adopting a cautious approach to its full-year earnings guidance, maintaining its forecast of an ebit level of between €500m and €1bn.last_img read more
