Sri Lanka: New CBSL Regulations to Protect Distressed Bank Customers Scree359

New CBSL Regulations for Consumer Protection published on 22nd August 2023 to provide protection  to customers from inappropriate actions of the Banks and other financial service providers.

The Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) issued Financial Consumer Protection Regulations, No. 01 of 2023 in terms of Section 10 (c) of the Monetary Law Act, No.58 of 1949 and published the same in the Government Extraordinary Gazette No. 2344/17 on 09.08.2023. These Regulations will apply to all Financial Service Providers regulated by CBSL on a uniform basis and are expected to strengthen the current financial consumer protection frameworks of CBSL, particularly Financial Consumer Protection directions issued under the Banking Act, the Finance Business Act and the Finance Leasing Act. Further, these regulations, formulated in line with international standards will establish the foundation for market conduct supervision by CBSL facilitating the development of a trusted and stable financial system in Sri Lanka.

“Financial service Provider” means a Licensed Commercial Bank, a Licensed specialised Bank, a Licensed Finance Company, a specialized Leasing Company, an authorized Primary dealer, an authorized Money Broker, a Licensed Microfinance Company, a Participant of the Payment and Settlement System or any other financial institution approved by the Monetary Board.

Is this applicable for Margin trading as well?  They simply escape mentioning that this not for investment loans like margin facilities and SEC is also not coming forward to protect investors from malaction by some margin providers at a wrong time.
