South Africa, Global Mutual Funds

South Africa – the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, which updated and replaced previously existing unit trust legislation, was enacted in 2002 and in place at the start of 2003. This Act moved legislation more in line with international best practice and was the subject of negotiation between the trade association and regulatory authorities for some years. The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FATS), which became law towards the end of 2002, had as its purpose the regulation of financial planners and advisers, as well as product suppliers, in the giving of advice and the conduct of their business in all areas where other industry legislation did not make specific provision.
