Koster said: “The attraction of the Dubai International Financial Centre, or DIFC as the domicile of choice for South African financial institutions in the Middle East should be enhanced by this regulatory relationship.”

This initiative reflects each agency’s commitment to co-operation in relation to prudential oversight and inspections. It adopts the model for information sharing developed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and follows similar arrangements the DFSA has with other significant banking supervisors in the UK, Germany, France, the US, Singapore and China. It is also worth noting that the DFSA already enjoys a good working relationship with Financial Services Board of South Africa having signed an MoU with in May 2008.
