BNM & Dubai Financial Services Authority team up on supervisory cooperation
Last update: 05/12/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 5 (Bernama) -- Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and the Dubai Financial Services Authority have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on supervisory cooperation for effective supervision of banking and insurance/ takaful/ reinsurance institutions operating in both countries.

"The MoU, inked on Nov 28, 2018 signifies continuous efforts to promote financial stability in both jurisdictions," BNM said in a statement today.  

It also provides a strong foundation for further development of effective supervisory systems in accordance with the principles set out in the Basel Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision, International Association of Insurance Supervision for Insurance Core Principles, and the Financial Action Task Force Recommendations on Anti-Money Laundering.

The MoU outlines cooperation and coordination between the authorities in the areas of exchange of information, facilitation of consolidated and cross-border on-site supervision, issuance of licences and combating money laundering and terrorism financing.

"These specific areas of cooperation are timely as regional and international trade and investment linkages continue to expand with increasing cross-border banking and insurance/takaful/reinsurance activities in both countries," it added.

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Banker’s Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashier’s Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
