SECP launches first investor awareness video series
May 20, 2019

Securities and Exchange Commission has launched its first investor awareness video series through its JamaPunji web portal, Twitter and Facebook platforms.

The series will be based on seven themes: Capital Market, Commodities Market, Islamic Finance, Insurance, Mutual Funds, Anti-Money Laundering/ CFT and Company Incorporation.

The launch is aimed at embracing the digitalization wave and use of the mass media and social media effectively to spread investor awareness.

Securities and Exchange Commission has also amended Non-Banking Finance Companies and Real Estate Investment Trust Regulations, 2018.

This is aimed at standarization of the criteria for determining the financial soundness and integrity of directors, chief executive officers, promoters, majority shareholders and key executives of regulated entities.

The amendments will bring objectivity and uniformity in assessing the fitness and propriety of these persons under various regulatory frameworks within the SECP's ambit.
