Promotion of Access to Information Act no.2 of 2000

1. Introduction The Promotion of Access to Information Act gives effect to the constitutional right of access to any information held by the state and any information that is held by another person and that is required for the exercise or protection of any rights. Specifically, section 51(1) of the Act provides that within six months after the commencement of this section (now the 31st December 2011) or within six months after coming into existence of the private body concerned, the head of a private body must compile a manual that must contain information regarding the subjects and categories of records held by such private bodies. In this context, a "private body" is defined as any natural person who carries or has carried on any trade, business or profession, but only in such capacity or any partnership which carries or has carried on any trade, business or profession or any former or existing juristic person (e.g. any company, close corporation or business trust). RA Direct falls within the definition of a "private body" and this Manual has been compiled in accordance with the said provisions and to fulfil the requirements of the Act. In terms of the Act, where a request for information is made to a body, there is an obligation to provide the information, except where the Act expressly provides that the information may not be released. In this context, Section 9 of the Act recognises that access to information can be limited. The limitation relates to circumstances where such release would pose a threat to the protection of privacy, commercial confidentiality, and the exercising of efficient governance. Accordingly, this manual provides a reference to the records held by RA Direct providers and the process that needs to be adopted to access such records. All requests for access to information (other than information that is available to the public) must be addressed to the Head of the Business named in section 2 of this Manual. 2.

Internal Policy on Conflict of Interest and Register of non-cash incentives

Objective In accordance with a financial services provider’s obligation to act in the best interest of his or her client, it is not permissible for a financial services provider to engage in conduct, whether by acting or failing to act, which would amount to a conflict of interest with that of the client. The primary objectives of this policy are: To provide guidance on the behaviors expected in accordance with the Code of Conduct. To promote transparency and avoid conflicts of interest. To ensure fairness in the interests of clients. To document the process for the disclosure, which may amount to actual, potential or perceived conflicts of interest. Process and Requirements Whenever RA Direct renders a financial service, it must disclose to clients the existence of any personal interest in the relevant service, or of any circumstance which gives rise to an actual or potential conflict of interest in relation to such service, and take all reasonable steps to ensure fair treatment of the client. Non-cash incentives offered and/or other indirect consideration payable by another provider, a product supplier or any other person to RA Direct, could be viewed as a potential conflict of interest. Disclosure will take the form of a specific disclosure of any personal interest in a specific service, as well as a general disclosure regarding non- cash incentives in RA Direct’s Contact Stage Disclosure letter, as well as the maintenance of a Register of Non-Cash Incentives. The details of any non-cash incentives offered and/or other indirect consideration paid to RA Direct by any other FSP, a product supplier or any other person will be recorded in the non-cash incentives register. The register will be available on the premises should a client wish to obtain further details. Personal Interest includes: Insurance where RA Direct sells the product of a smaller product provider company in which RA Direct has a financial interest for example, is a shareholder in the company. Instances where the interest is other than a reasonable amount of commission. Instances where the RA Direct partakes in some sort of profit share with the product provider company. Non-cash incentives include: Offshore trips, seminars, holidays or other substantial gifts offered where there is an expectation to do, give or provide something in return for the product provider; Prizes or incentives offered to RA Direct to reach a certain sales target for a specific product; Special commission rate given to RA Direct if RA Direct sell’s a certain product; Small gifts such as lunches, golf days, rugby tickets, promotional will also be recorded in the register of non-cash incentives. Fair Treatment of the Client: At all times RA Direct must be able to show that where there were similar products that may have been suitable with similar benefits, that the product recommended would have been recommended regardless of the incentive offered to RA Direct.
