MFDA begins sketching map to new SRO

first_img Keywords Self-regulatory organizations,  Regulatory reformCompanies Canadian Securities Administrators, Mutual Fund Dealers Association, Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada Horn speaker for public relations sign symbol, vintage color - sun with blue sky 123RF The ongoing battle over the future of self-regulation escalated on Tuesday when the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) announced that it is developing a plan for implementing its proposed vision for a new SRO.Last year, the MFDA published a paper setting out its proposed model for a new SRO that would oversee all registered firms, including exempt market dealers (EMDs) and portfolio managers, alongside fund dealers and investment dealers, while hiving off the responsibility of market regulation to the provincial securities regulators. Regulators must avert looming irrelevance: IAP Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton MFDA seeks to speed up account transfers OSC seeks market structure expertise Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news The MFDA proposal came amid a review of the SRO structure that’s being undertaken by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA). Ontario’s Capital Markets Modernization Taskforce has also recommended reforming self-regulation by merging the MFDA with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) in the short-term, with the ultimate goal of expanding oversight to other registration categories over time.The MFDA is now pushing ahead with the development of an “implementation roadmap” for its preferred model, which, it argued, is closely aligned with the recommendations of the Ontario task force.“The task force’s recommendations to create a new single SRO to oversee all advisory firms, with a strengthened accountability framework, including its governance recommendation to include CSA nominees on the new SRO board, are very much aligned with the MFDA’s proposals,” the MFDA said in a notice.In the meantime, the CSA is continuing to review the comments it received on its consultation on SRO reform, and has indicated that it will publish its conclusions later this year.“The roadmap is intended to support the ongoing consultations on fundamental reform of securities industry self-regulation currently being conducted under the leadership and direction of the CSA,” the MFDA said in a release.“Our goal is to empower and assist all stakeholders — investors, industry, regulators and governments — in envisioning a clear path toward a new SRO driven first and foremost by the public interest, and underpinned by sound governance, industry expertise and responsiveness to investor and market needs,” said Mark Gordon, president and CEO of the MFDA. “A clear implementation roadmap, which enables everyone to visualize how such change can be achieved, is a critical step in this effort.”Notwithstanding the MFDA’s efforts, IIROC has advocated for a straightforward merger of the two existing SROs. Trade groups for the EMD sector and portfolio managers have opposed being drawn into an SRO altogether.last_img read more

The Huayra BC, a $4.5 million hypercar, makes its Canadian public debut at the Luxury & Supercar Weekend.  Submitted VANCOUVER — The kids are back to school, the traffic chaos has returned to Metro Vancouver streets and Canucks’ training camp is just around the corner.All of which means its also time for the city’s annual over-the-top car show at VanDusen Botanical Garden. And the 2018 edition of the Luxury & Supercar Weekend will not disappoint, with a combined value of more than a quarter-billion dollars of metal, carbon fibre and leather treasures scattered across 17 acres of verdant lawn.“As the country’s premier luxury lifestyle and automotive event, Luxury & Supercar Weekend attracts exhibitors and visitors from across the world,” says show president Craig Stowe. “Over the past nine years, we’ve become a signature destination event that attracts those that share a passion for luxury goods and supercars.” RELATED TAGSSupercarLuxury CarsLuxury VehiclesNew VehiclesSupercarsVancouver The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever This year’s stunning showcase of the luxury lifestyle features a couple of Canadian firsts, including the public launch of the $4.5-million Pagani Huayra BC hyper car and the only Canadian stop on the world tour of the first Porsche ever built, the 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster in celebration of the marque’s 70th anniversary.

Vancouver tech entrepreneur Kevin Gordon has spent considerable money and time in creating this super supercar, and to fully appreciate it is to see it in the flesh (which is completely carbon fibre).In the first few years of the show it was just about the new, shiny stuff, but an evolution took hold and over the past few years a fantastic Concours collector vehicle tribute display has been cultivated. This year is no exception and will include the 40th anniversary of the Defender, the Dino Ferrari, and what show organizer call the ‘world’s finest collection of Vipers.’Another somewhat new aspect of the show is the luxury and supercar auction, which takes place tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. and will see $10 million worth of vehicles cross the floor under the professional guidance of ADESA auctions.On Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Steinway’s “Concert in the Garden” will feature the winner of the Steinway Piano Competition and Steinway Young Artist Club.

Roache Gully in St. Thomas to be repaired

Roache Gully is situated on the main road between White Horses and Morant Bay. The contract was signed by Minister of Transport and Works, Hon. Michael Henry; State Minister in the Ministry, Hon. Othniel Lawrence; Member of Parliament for West St. Thomas, James Robertson; and Director, Rebar Construction Limited, Jermaine Robinson, at  a ceremony, held at the Ministry’s offices in Kingston, on October 4. Speaking at the signing, Minister Henry said the work is expected to be completed in 12 weeks. He said the scope of work would include the construction of 1,060 square metres of random rubble wall of approximately 50 metres in length. “Its construction will add to the width of the roadway in that vicinity (gully) by approximately 1.5 metres,” he said. The Minister said the project is of critical importance to residents of both communities who benefit directly, and to motorists who use the roadway. He urged the contractors to implement the project within budget and on time. Mr. Henry said the works to be done are as a result of a breakaway which was caused by Tropical Storm Nicole last year, adding that the work is designed to restore the section of the roadway at that location.

Taskforce to Aid in Growth of Animation Industry

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Photo: JIS Photographer RelatedStudents Urged to be Responsible Digital Citizens A high-level working group has been convened to aid in facilitating the growth and development of Jamaica’s animation industry.The group, which has been assembled by Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, comprises of stakeholders from the public and private sectors, the animation industry, training institutions, business support services, and financial institutions.“The taskforce has already started to craft the policy framework required to support all aspects of the industry, through the provision of the most enabling environment,” the Minister informed on July 17, as he addressed an animation workshop at JAMPRO’s New Kingston offices.The establishment of the group is among initiatives by the Government to drive growth in the animation sector and position Jamaica as the animation hub of the entire Americas.Mr. Hylton said that through JAMPRO and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), a finishing school will be developed to equip animators with the skills to compete on the world stage.He informed that the administration is already in discussion with the HEART Trust/NTA for the inclusion of an animation workforce training course, to be added to their curriculum, “to produce Jamaica’s first home grown batch of animators”.Currently valued at over US$200 billion, the global animation industry has been growing at a tremendous pace over the past four years, expanding by over $1 billion per year, which is equivalent to a 20 per cent yearly growth rate.Minister Hylton said that this presents tremendous economic opportunities for Jamaica and the Government is committed to ensuring that “we do not miss the animation boat”. He noted that the network of animators and animation outfits in Jamaica continues to grow, with four animation studios exporting their services globally.He said that Jamaica has many advantages in the sector including access to a large, skilled workforce, a near shore advantage and cultural affinity with the large animation markets of the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. In addition, Jamaica is the third largest English-speaking nation in the Western Hemisphere, with a strong reputation for creativity.“Outsourcing in the animation industry is lucrative, and makes for good business sense because gone are the days when any job is completed in one location. In 2012, global animation revenue in entertainment alone generated over US$100 billion, most of which was specific to the video game industry, and discrete elements of any video game are produced in several spaces.  The ship of outsourcing animation is sailing, and Jamaica needs to be on board,” he stated.The Minister further noted that animation can be integrated into pre-existing plans, such as the Logistics Hub Initiative, tourism and sports.“In exploring the possibilities for the growth of the animation industry, we need to factor in the linkages to other industries.  For example, animation is a tried and proven methodology for the creation of training videos in every discipline at every level. It will also undoubtedly play an important role in a wide range of communication and media related activity associated with the development of the Logistics Hub,” he said.Stating that a “platinum opportunity” awaits the country in the global animation industry, he said that Jamaica must prepare and position itself to take advantage of the opportunities, and use them as platforms for economic growth, and job and wealth creation.“Becoming a key player in the global animation industry will have a significant positive impact on the medium, small and micro enterprises (MSME) sector and will support the goals of the National Development Plan Vision 2030.The Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce remains committed to that wider goal of economic development and in building the animation industry …Jamaica’s brand dominance exists in the areas of sports, music and aspects of culture. Let us now work towards carving out our niche and becoming a mega brand in global animation,” he stated.Chairman, JAMPRO, Milton Samuda, said being a labour intensive industry, animation provides employment opportunities for Jamaica’s inventive youth and more importantly, given the highly mobile attributes of the sector, it has a strong potential for the exports of services and the earning of well-needed foreign exchange for Jamaica.“JAMPRO has played a significant role to date in engaging our animators and establishing linkages with external stakeholders – both from a developmental and support point-of-view as well as in respect for demand for animation services,” he said.He said that through the workshop, the organisation is seeking to continue the critical work required to lay the foundation for building the Jamaican animation industry.Entitled: ‘SME Internalisation: Positioning the animation industry for investments and exports’, the workshop was put on by JAMPRO in collaboration with the IDB. Story HighlightsA high-level working group has been convened to aid in facilitating the growth and development of Jamaica’s animation industry.The group, which has been assembled by Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon.

Even without Woods, plenty at stake at Wyndham

first_imgGREENSBORO, N.C. – There’s still plenty at stake at the Wyndham Championship this year – even if some of the big names from last year aren’t playing. Tiger Woods didn’t return, sidelined by a back injury. And Davis Love III – a local favorite and three-time winner who had hip surgery last month – is only watching. When play begins Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club, the field once again will be littered with players trying to force their way off the PGA Tour’s bubble in the final week of golf’s regular season and earn spots in the first round of the playoffs. Others are trying to make one last impression on Love, who’s scouting as the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Woods made his only appearance in Greensboro a year ago in a last-ditch effort to make the postseason. He finished four strokes behind Love and fell short of the top 125 on the points list. Wyndham Championship: Articles, photos and videos But his presence had Sedgefield abuzz all week and helped the tournament set its modern-day attendance record of about 143,000 for the four rounds, including about 35,000 on the final day. It was the last tournament Woods played on the Tour because of a back surgery. This is the next-to-last chance to earn Ryder Cup points, with the top eight players determined after the first playoff event at The Barclays next week at Bethpage Black. Love will make his first three captain’s picks Sept. 11 after the BMW Championship in Carmel, Indiana. The final pick comes two weeks later after the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Among Love’s possibilities here this week: Jim Furyk plays his first round since shooting the first 58 in PGA Tour history during the final round of the Travelers Championship, Rickie Fowler is one of seven Olympians here and 2007 Wyndham winner Brandt Snedeker also is back. The Wyndham has long relished its spot as the last chance for The tour’s bubble players to force their way into the FedEx Cup playoffs, which are open to the top 125 players on the points list, and secure their spots on the tour for next season. ”The playoffs, obviously that’s where you can do the most damage,” said Harold Varner III, who grew up in Gastonia and played college golf at East Carolina. ”Right now, I feel good. I just want to seal my card. That’s the biggest thing because sometimes you don’t get into all the events your rookie year. ”I did a pretty good job of that, got into two majors. A lot of positives, but there’s still some big tournaments coming up, like this one this week.” Varner sure seems safe at No. 79 on the points list in his first year on tour. Others aren’t nearly so secure. Every player ranked from No. 121 to No. 135 has entered. Some, like No. 121 David Toms and No. 124 Matt Jones, want to play well enough to hold on to their spots. Others, like No. 126 Scott Stallings and No. 129 Steve Marino, need to earn enough points to move up a few spots. Perhaps they’ll draw inspiration from Love, who last year made the biggest jump in the tournament’s history. His victory propelled him from No. 186 to No. 76. But in 2014, only one player outside the top 125 – Sang-Moon Bae – earned enough points here to move into the playoffs. The year before, nobody did it.last_img read more
