In terms of section 29 of the Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017 (FSR Act), the Governor of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) may, by written notice to a financial institution, designate the institution as a systemically important financial institution (SIFI).
The FSR Act prescribes the formal process that must be followed prior to such a designation, and the development and publication of the discussion document titled ‘A methodology to determine which insurers are systemically important within the South African context’ is an initial step towards meeting these requirements.
