GEN 12 Guidance

Whole Section PDF

The definitive version of DFSA handbook text is the PDF version as that is the text of the instrument as made and published by the DFSA.

1. Part 9 of the Regulatory Law ("Part 9") sets out provisions relating to financial services business transfer schemes ("transfer schemes"). Article 106 provides that no transfer scheme is to have effect unless a CourtG order has been made in relation to the scheme. Article 108 provides that the CourtG may make an order sanctioning a transfer scheme.
2. The DFSAG may under Article 113 of the Regulatory Law make Rules providing for provisions of Part 9 to have effect in specified cases with modifications. This chapter sets out such Rules.
3. The intended effect of the Rules in this chapter when read with Part 9 is that:
(a) a Banking transfer scheme and an InsuranceG transfer scheme (as defined in this chapter) must continue to comply with all relevant requirements in Part 9 and such a scheme does not take effect unless a CourtG order has been made in relation to it under Article 108; and
(b) a transfer scheme, other than a scheme referred to in (a) or a scheme relating to a Domestic FundG , is not required to be sanctioned by a CourtG order under Article 108 if certain conditions set out in Rule 12.1.4 are met.
4. The Rules in this chapter do not prevent an Authorised FirmG or transferee applying for a CourtG order sanctioning a transfer scheme under Part 9 if they consider it appropriate to do so, for example, if the scheme is complex, is likely to be contentious or if additional legal certainty is sought.
