The “Twin Peaks” model of financial sector regulation creates - under the South African Reserve Bank - the “Prudential Authority”.
The “Prudential Authority” must uphold the reliability of regulated financial institutions.
The Financial Sector Conduct Authority will be tasked with protecting customers through its oversight.
Structures will be in place to ensure co-ordination between the two authorities and other regulators.
The Financial Services Board (FSB) will change into the Financial Sector Conduct Authority and will act as a dedicated market conduct regulator.

Coovadia discussed “Twin Peaks” and the implementation thereof.
