Abstract

The proposed reforms to financial regulation in South Africa, as embodied in the Financial Sector Regulation Bill, (second draft, 10 December, 2014) (‘FSR Bill’), represent the most important reforms to South Africa’s financial regulatory architecture since the 1987 de Kock Commission. The degree to which these reforms succeed will determine the extent to which South Africa can maintain financial stability, and manage the effects of a future financial crisis.
