The CSA’s latest oversight review report on IIROC highlights a couple of areas where the self-regulatory organization (SRO) failed to adequately resolve issues that were flagged in its previous review in 2015. In particular, the report indicates that IIROC failed to make promised changes to its examination procedures for assessing suitability in managed accounts. “Staff note that the revised procedures were implemented in October 2016, eight months after IIROC initially stated the changes had been made,” the CSA states in its report. Additionally, the CSA says that new examination procedures for assessing compliance with certain aspects of the mutual fund sales-practices rules were not implemented by June 30, 2016, as the regulators originally agreed. “Staff were subsequently informed that the revised procedures were implemented in February 2017, more than seven months later,” the CSA states. The CSA report flags this lack of follow-through as the only “high” priority issue for IIROC in this latest review. It notes that failing to take corrective action and to monitor the resolution of issues that arise during oversight reviews could result in IIROC failing to meet one of the terms of its recognition orders. The report indicates that a change in management within the SRO’s compliance division was the primary reason for the slow progress, and that IIROC will adopt a new process that will make tracking the resolution of issues raised in CSA oversight reviews the responsibility of its general counsel’s office to. The CSA says that it expects the new process to be in place by Sept. 30, and for IIROC to report on the effectiveness of the new process by March 31, 2018. Some of the other, less urgent issues identified in the report include a lack of guidance for IIROC compliance staff on identifying repeat or significant deficiencies, and the absence of a process for taking a holistic view of dealers and their compliance records. On those issues, the report notes that IIROC is currently drafting guidance to help its staff in determining whether a compliance issue should be referred to enforcement. IIROC also states that it will take steps to better document efforts at dealing with firms with multiple compliance issues, and that firms’ regulatory history will be “appropriately considered as part of the new compliance referral process.” The CSA report acknowledges that IIROC has made sufficient progress in resolving the other findings set out in the 2015 oversight report, and that the provincial regulators expect IIROC to resolve the latest findings. “We have worked diligently to address the annual findings and we are committed to ensuring we continue to comply with the terms and conditions of the recognition orders,” IIROC says in a statement on the review. “We intend to fully address any outstanding findings in order to enhance our regulatory effectiveness and strengthen our capabilities in the changing regulatory environment.” The coordinated review was conducted jointly by seven of the provincial securities regulators including: the Alberta Securities Commission, Autorité des marchés financiers, the British Columbia Securities Commission, the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan, the Manitoba Securities Commission, the Nova Scotia Securities Commission, and the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC). The risk-based review focuses on higher-risk aspects of IIROC’s operations, such as enforcement, business conduct compliance and information technology.

Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Industry groups are divided on the prospect of regulators further expanding investment fund cost reporting requirements under the Client Relationship Model, an initiative that has been referred to as CRM3.Securities regulators should put off their decision on whether to pursue expanded reporting until they’ve had a chance to assess the impact of other recent regulatory initiatives in this area, such as the CRM2 reforms and mutual fund point-of-sale requirements, the Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) announced Friday. The IIAC’s comments are in response to a recent discussion paper issued by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) on possibly expanding cost reporting requirements to capture costs such as management expense ratios.“Canada’s securities regulators should hold off making any decision on mandating further cost reporting until the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) completes its comprehensive study on the impact of CRM2 and the point of sale amendments,” says Ian Russell, president and CEO of the IIAC in a statement. “With only two years’ worth of CRM2 reports having been provided to clients thus far, the initiative’s effectiveness has yet to be determined.”The IIAC’s resistance to expanded reporting runs counter to the views of the Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC), which supports the idea. In its submission to the MFDA, IFIC supports expanded cost reporting, which it believes will benefit investors.“The industry has invested significant time and effort in providing enhanced disclosures under CRM2, and the next logical step in enhancing disclosure is to expand cost reporting. This will further enhance transparency to investors of the costs of owning investment funds,” IFIC states in its submission.IFIC’s submission also proposes a calculation methodology for these sorts of disclosures, and provides the mutual fund industry group’s views on possible implementation issues and transition periods. Among other things, the IFIC submission recommends that regulators give the industry at least three years to implement expanded cost reporting, after rules in this area are finalized.Also readMFDA seeks input on expanding cost reportingThe Canadian Foundation for the Advancement of Investor Rights (FAIR Canada), an investor advocacy group, also supports the underlying idea of improved cost disclosure, but stresses that regulators should focus on eliminating conflicts, rather than relying on expanded disclosure to protect investors.“FAIR Canada believes investors would be best served by eliminating conflict of interests rather than by more fulsome disclosure of the costs of conflicted compensation. The absence of conflicts of interest should be the goal,” the advocacy group states in its submission to the MFDA. “The focus should be on the best interests of investors, and improving investor protection and investor outcomes.”In a staff notice published in June, the CSA endorsed the MFDA’s initiative. “We are supportive of the MFDA’s efforts to consider improvements to current disclosure to meet these objectives, and expect to engage more closely with the MFDA and IIROC to advance this important initiative,” the CSA states in the notice.

Justices Of The Peace Urged To Assist Efforts to Eliminate Human Trafficking Local GovernmentJune 23, 2013Written by: Glenis A. Rose RelatedContribution to the Annual Sectoral Debate by the Hon. Noel Arscott, M.P. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice, Carol Palmer, has called on Justices of the Peace (JPs) to play a more active role in sensitising community members about human trafficking and identifying perpetrators of the crime.Mrs. Palmer, who is also Chairman of the National Task Force Against Trafficking In Persons (TIP), made the appeal as she addressed an installation ceremony for 35 new JPs for the parish for St. James, held on Thursday (June 20), at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.“We have seen in the past few years, an increase in the number of reported cases of trafficking in persons in Jamaica … I implore you to be keen on this issue and to help to uncover in your communities, any instance of forced labour, forced prostitution or forced exploitation,” she stated.Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery andinvolvesthe use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploitchildren and adults for some type of labor or commercialsex purpose.Jamaica has made significant strides in addressing human trafficking. In addition to establishing the national task force, there have been increased activities in preventing human trafficking and punishing traffickers.A shelter has been established for the care and protection of victims and between April 2012 and March 2013, the police conducted some 213 raids in establishments across the island and 23 human trafficking victims were rescued. There have been seven TIP investigations launched and four arrests made up to March 2013.Public education efforts have been significantly revved up to increase awareness of the crime.The United States (US) State Department, in its latest Trafficking in Persons Report, has upgraded Jamaica from its Tier 2 Watch List to Tier 2, which is a recognition of the country’s gains in complying with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.Mrs. Palmer, in her address to the JPs, also urged them to be on guard when persons come to them to authenticate documents.Traffickers will often confiscate the passports and visas of victims, or have identifying documents drawn up based on false information.“In your role of verifying documents and validating identity, I urge you to be vigilant that you do not unwittingly assist would be perpetrators. When persons or groups come to you for the verification of documents, be observant. Does one individual seem to be exercising unusual or inappropriate control over another person and their documents?” she stated.Mrs. Palmer told those JPs, who are afraid to carry out their role in this regard, to immediately turn in their commission to the Custos of the parish. “If you are not prepared to say ‘I do not know you, I cannot do this for you’ then return the instruments of office to the Custos,” she advised.The Permanent Secretary said that as “standard bearers” in their communities the JPs are called upon to serve with integrity, honesty and dignity, and to be morally upright.“Do not be influenced by anyone in carrying out your duties. Do not be afraid to carry out your duties in strict adherence to established principles, laws, regulations and guidelines. Do not allow anyone to cower you from your pedestal of moral exactitude,” she told them.

However, he told Mobile World Live the implementation of RCS as the messaging standard would offer a more effective communications channel for businesses than SMS currently provides.“We have a very good opportunity in the [consumer] conversation with brands,” Pegado said: “There are a lot of opportunities through RCS so brands can improve, can send video, images, localisation with Google Maps, other things.”More from Pegado on how Google is working with operators to open up this opportunity can be found here.Last week four of Latin America’s largest operators launched advanced RCS services, enabling next generation messaging for 60 per cent of the region’s mobile subscribers.Customers of America Movil, Oi, Telefonica and AT&T Mexico will be able to send cross-network RCS messages and also to users in countries outside of Latin America connected to Google’s RCS cloud hub Jibe Platform.

LOS ANGELES – Louis Pasteur once famously figured, “Chance favors the prepared mind.” There’s no history of the father of pasteurization playing competitive golf, and most players in the Genesis Open field probably wouldn’t recognize his prose, but they certainly live by the concept. On the PGA Tour, every eventuality is anticipated, from the choice of what clubs to play at certain venues to the shots they practice depending on that week’s conditions. No golf ball is left unturned. But during weeks like this when Mother Nature forces her will on the outcome, often there is no way to prepare. It’s an occupational hazard of playing an outdoor sport, but that doesn’t provide any comfort when players end up on the wrong side of the draw. At Riviera Country Club, that line was clearly drawn as Round 2 got underway on Friday under foreboding skies. After a pair of fog delays on Day 1 pushed the completion of the first round into Friday, the early starters were greeted with increasingly difficult conditions. By the time many reached the turn, the storm that had been forecast had arrived, with winds gusting to 40 mph and a cold, driving rain making just remaining upright difficult, never mind trying to swing with any consistency. When play was suspended for the day just past noon, none of the late second-round starters had began their rounds. When those late starters returned early Saturday to a soft golf course and dramatically calmer conditions, the differential between waves was striking. The early wave scoring average for Round 2, those who played through the worst of Friday’s tempest, was 72.86 (including just 29 of 72 rounds in the 60s), while the afternoon draw was more than two strokes better with a 70.47 average. Genesis Open: Articles, photos and videos “This weather sure would have been nice to play in yesterday or this morning,” Justin Thomas tweeted of the more benign afternoon conditions long after he’d completed his weather-whipped round. It’s understandable those on the wrong side of lady luck may lament their misfortune, but they also realize that pulling a “bad draw” is simply part of the game, like a poor lie or a perfect drive that finds a divot (a rub that should be eliminated, but that’s a topic for another day). “You’ve got to try and find positives because the moment that you start thinking negatives and ‘Why am I so unlucky because I was on the wrong side of the draw?’ that’s why you’re either missing cuts or you’re not making the right decisions out there,” said world No. 1 Jason Day, who endured the worst of Friday’s conditions on his way to his second consecutive 70. Joining Day on the wrong side of fortune were Brooks Koepka (72), Thomas (71) and Hideki Matsuyama, who was 146 under par in his last 10 starts before ballooning to a second-round 80. It was the Japanese star’s first missed cut anywhere in the world since last August. Although the weather normally doesn’t become such a dramatic influence until the Open Championship, when a shifting wind can bring four seasons in a matter of minutes, the last two Tour stops have been influenced by storms that didn’t impact the field equally. Similarly heavy rain and wind forced officials to suspend play during Round 1 last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but that “Crosby” edition of the old clambake also stands as an example of how players can often overcome a poor draw. Jordan Speith was in the early, more demanding, wave last week at Pebble Beach and had to finish his opening round on Friday on his way to a four-stroke victory; and this week Jhonattan Vegas has defied the odds, coming from the poor side of the tee sheet to grab a share of the early second-round lead. Vegas played through Friday’s gale, opening his round with birdies at Nos. 1, 5, 6 and 9 before the more difficult conditions set in and he closed his round with seven consecutive pars (including the final four of his second round on Saturday morning). “It was tough but I knew that you had to stay patient,” Vegas said. “This is a course that nobody’s going to run away with it. Just have to stay patient and it worked out really well.” Given the forecast, which included a 100 percent chance of rain on Friday, Vegas said he knew he was probably on the wrong side of the draw but didn’t spend a lot of time mulling his fate. “It’s too much extra pressure you put on yourself that you shouldn’t,” said Vegas, who will begin the third round tied for fourth place after play was suspended because of darkness. “Obviously you plan for what’s coming your way, but if you start looking at bad breaks and good breaks and good luck and bad luck, it’s just a lot happening that’s out of your control that I try not to focus on it.” Pasteur was right, chance does favor the prepared mind. But on days like Friday, the strong mind also has a say in things.
Northwest MEP Marian Harkin has called on Northern Irish authorities to enforce European free movement laws and immediately cease the practice of clamping cars displaying Republic of Ireland trade plates.The Independent MEP’s engagement on this issue began when she was contacted by a constituent, Paul Dunleavy, who runs the “Modern Motors” car dealership in Letterkenny, County Donegal.In 2009, Mr. Dunleavy, who has 20 years experience freely transporting cars between England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, had a vehicle – registered in the UK but displaying Republic of Ireland Trade Plates – clamped by the Driver Vehicle Authority in County Derry.Having instigated legal proceedings, a judge ruled in Mr. Dunleavy’s favour, and the clamping was subsequently thrown out of court, and his fine returned by the DVA.Then, in June 2011, an identical clamping incident occurred, and though Mr. Dunleavy’s fine was again returned, he was informed by a DVA official that he would under no circumstances be permitted to drive cars in Northern Ireland while displaying ROI trade plates.Believing this action to be in breach of EU rules on the free movement of goods and services, Harkin this week brought Mr. Dunleavy to Brussels, where he met with European Commission officials from the EU Executive’s Enterprise and Industry section and received a favourable hearing.Ms Harkins says the rules apply right across the European Union, across all borders and that hopefully, with the intervention of the European Commission, this matter can be satisfactorily resolved Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pregnant women can receive Covid vaccine at LYIT’s vaccination centre News Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire Google+ By News Highland – February 11, 2012 Pinterest NI authorities should enfore European free movement laws – MEP Marian Harkin 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Lárionad Acmhainní Nádúrtha CTR to take part in new research project LUH still not ready to restore IT systems Facebook Previous articleKevin Cassidy says his Donegal GAA career is overNext articleNew Donegal charity adventure race is launched News Highland Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal WhatsApp Twitter Google+ WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest
The failure of shipping lines to make a profit and terminal operators reporting declining profitability is putting the entire supply chain at risk, delegates at this week’s TOC Americas Container Supply Chain event in Panama heard.Dinesh Sharma, executive director at supply chain analyst Drewry, said carriers and terminal operators were being pressured to diversify their business portfolios to mitigate the increasing risks from the trade war between China and the US and the huge surge in costs expected to hit carriers once the IMO’s low sulphur fuel regulations come into force in 2020. By Gavin van Marle in Panama 16/11/2018 “Both carriers and terminal operators are diversifying, which is understandable when you see that asset-light freight forwarders are continuing to make money, and they are a target for carriers.“The risks of this strategy is that now each operator in the supply chain currently has a defined role which they are good at. But what happens when everyone owns operations all along the chain?“Are they going to be competing with their customers – those forwarders which remain independent – and will they be able to deliver value to the end customers, the shippers?“I don’t think these questions have been answered,” he said.Mr Sharma questioned the effectiveness of US president Trump’s tactic of applying new tariffs on Chinese exports, if his aim was to stimulate US manufacturing, reverse the trade deficit or in some way penalise China by heaping extra costs onto its exporters.“Firstly, China can simply lower the value of the yuan to counteract that; but if that doesn’t work and exporting directly from China becomes too expensive, then Chinese firms have the option of moving manufacturing to third countries – we don’t think the tariffs will help the US in any way.“We see two scenarios developing: either China yields to Trump’s demands, which we think is very unlikely; or come the next US presidential election in 2020 the tariffs are rolled back.“The International Monetary Fund believes 2020 is the point at which the tariffs will begin to hurt the US economy,” he said. © Jingaiping | Dreamstime.com – Shanghai Yangshan Deepwater Port Economic FTA container terminal crane lifting towers

MA degree from Tartu, EstoniaThe postgraduate studies of Political Science and interdisciplinary programmes in Social Sciences at the University of Tartu, Estonia, are achieving new heights with the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies. The Institute is remarkable in its integration of advanced teaching and research methods in English.All master programmes have benefited from the introduction of active learning methods such as flipped classroom, simulations and problem-based courses. Side by side with the academic content, interactive teaching methods are employed to give the students valuable transferrable skills and competencies for higher competitiveness in post-graduate careers. For example, you may have to craft a project and implement it or participate in a simulation of drafting a policy document. You may have an opportunity to go to a practical conflict management field trip or do an internship in Estonia or abroad.The Institute has a strong international dimension, as illustrated by four MA programmes and one PhD programme, all taught in English. The multicultural environment is made up not only of students but also numerous teaching staff members from all around the world.The Institute offers the following Master programmes:Baltic Sea Region StudiesDemocracy and GovernanceEuropean Union – Russia StudiesInternational Relations and Regional StudiesWhat students at the University of Tartu sayBrigita Šalkutė, Lithuania,Second year student of European Union–Russia Studies MA programmeBrigita: “If you wish to acquire quality education in a modern, inspiring and thrilling academic environment, University of Tartu is definitely the right choice for you. In addition to world-class lecturers of different nationalities, a colourful student body and multifaceted curriculum, they also motivate students further with frequent events such as study tours, summer and winter schools. It is an environment that successfully ties together different disciplines, nationalities, and theory and practice.”Adrian Nikolov, BulgariaFirst year student of Democracy and Governance MA programmeAdrian: “While Tartu may sound like a strange choice for many, who would just ship off to the “traditional” study destinations in Western Europe, for me this choice was a no-brainer. Why? Primarily because Eastern Europe feels like home, and Tartu was more than ready to become a home for me. My programme is precisely what I wanted from my studies – sufficiently long as to allow me to properly dive into the depth of social science, methodologically rigorous and demanding so that I can develop the research skills crucial in the field and at the same time providing a friendly environment which makes a student really feel appreciated and helped, whenever necessary.”MA tuition scholarshipsThe University of Tartu is committed to attracting talented students from all over the world.
