An information poster of the most important principles stated in the Guide shall be set in the company and its branches and all other places that provide services to the clients.
He added that Investor Protection Guide represents a message of awareness and notifying the prospective clients of the basic protection principles which will be implemented in an intensive communication program aimed at reaching citizens through mass media, print and digital media at the beginning of next week to introduce these principles. The said principles include transparency, fair treatment, risk reduction, dispute resolution, complaints resolution and strengthening trust - in all details of each non-banking financial activity.

On the top of these obligations are : honesty upon providing information , access to all information provided to the client, ensure that they understand them clearly, understand how to use financial product or service accurately and correctly. Besides, giving advice on not to buy any financial products or services that are not appropriate to their financial situation ,as well as their right to obtain copies of contracts and documents after signing them and keeping them in a safe place.
He emphasized that many economies rush towards providing and facilitating access to financial products and services in a timely manner and at an affordable cost to all segments of society , through using new technology in an active and accelerated manner , taking from the "financial inclusion" a headline ". Accordingly, regulatory bodies like – the Financial Regulatory Authority (FRA) takes the responsibility of protecting investors and spreading financial awareness for such categories. the Regulatory bodies become directly responsible of enhancing the credibility and trust in the non-banking financial sector activities. Besides, reducing any damage to clients’ interests as a result of the lack of sufficient and clear disclosure of the most important evidence and procedures, unfair transactions or risks of safety and confidentiality of data , in addition to digital fake offers that may subject to "doubt and anonymous.
FRA’s Chairman added that challenges facing regulatory bodies worldwide reached its peak after it was proved that more than 60% of the world's population used financial technology in their transactions in 2016 - according to the Global System for Mobile Communication. He noted that this action increased opportunities for integrating poor and marginalized, moving from the informal financial system to the formal financial system, allowing access to innovative types of financial products and services in a faster and more secure way available for all inpiduals.
FRA’s Chairman noted that investor protection file has become a "global trend" of great importance within the policies of different countries, in the light of the complexity of financial decisions in the financial markets, which currently characterized by complex financial products, where it is not easy for a large proportion of inpiduals to recognize its risks. In this respect, one of the priorities of FRA’s strategy for the next four years was to urgently seek to develop principles of investor protection within the framework of a balanced relationship that provides protection to investors in the capital markets, insurance, private insurance funds and financing activities of various types, providing fair treatment for all clients and enhancing transparency and trust in all financial transactions provided by institutions under FRA’s supervision.
He stressed that the first detailed Investor Protection Guide in the Egyptian market is consistent with best practices in many countries, international best practices and standards set for investors’ protection by international financial institutions such as OECD, UNCTAD and EU and the World Bank Report 2017 on Good practices for financial consumer protection.
He noted that investor protection is essential to ensure that they obtain the needed information to take informed decisions. Also, information must be clear and simple so that investors can understand it. On the other hand, financial service providers shall treat clients fairly and avoid any misguided practices. Financial service providers shall have responsible and professional conduct before, during and after providing financial services. They must be qualified and have the necessary qualifications and certificates to enable them to perform their role efficiently and distinctly.
FRA’s Chairman also stressed that clients have the right to resort to mechanisms - guaranteed by legislations regulating non-banking financial markets - to grieve and complain to resolve disputes arising from service providers. That is besides, other mechanisms to protect the privacy and confidentiality of personal information, as well as ways to ensure clients’ protection in cases of Bankruptcy of Financial Service Providers.
It should be noted that the set of principles included in this Guide is complementary and not an alternative to FRA’s decisions and rules related to investor protection. Financial institutions should take the necessary measures to implement the principles and controls in this Guide. If any of the stated principles contradicts the laws, the laws prevail.

And within the framework of achieving the objectives of FRA’s comprehensive strategy of non-banking financial activities (2018-2022) to improve financial inclusion and develop capital markets in parallel with strengthening the legislative framework of non-banking financial sector,

FRA’s Chairman revealed that a series of meetings will be held to hear the views of representatives of NGOs and financial institutions on FRA’s proposal to amend Microfinance Law no. 141 of 2014. The new amendments to the Law shall match the developments revealed by the actual application of the law over the past four years regarding the need to increase finance value that may be granted to clients. In addition, the new amendments will provide a new finance ceiling for another category to facilitate the associations and civil institutions engaged in finance activity in light of the variables witnessed by the Egyptian economy.

FRA’s Chairman stressed the keenness of the regulator to listen to the viewpoints of those operating in non-banking financial markets , adding that the amendments to the existing legislations are often in response to the experience of professions associated with practicing non-banking financial activities. He pointed out that the specialized consultative committees formed in the Authority are studying all suggestions of those engaged in the markets.

In his meeting with trainees who have passed the first program on derivatives organized by Financial Services Institute, FRA’s Chairman said that the Authority is working hard to increase markets’ efficiency. He added that FRA is introducing new and advanced training programs and provided professional certificates in financial engineering in cooperation with scientific academic institutions to spread the idea of financial derivatives within the Egyptian economy.
The aim of introducing new non-banking financial instruments in the Egyptian market was to attract more investments and persify the financial instruments traded in the Egyptian market. Accordingly, this will broaden the base of choosing the most appropriate financing instrument for each institution according to their financial policies. FRA’s Chairman added that such new instruments are the main engines of FRA’s successive regulatory decisions since the beginning of this year in order to activate Futures Exchange which is one of the most important amendments to the Capital Market Law promulgated by Law No. 17 of 2018.
He explained that the implementation of the roadmap set by the Authority to activate Futures Exchanges shall be held either through licensing the establishment of a new entity “Futures Exchange” or through granting license to the Egyptian Stock Exchange to engage in the activity without the need to establish a company. He added that FRA’s roadmap included the procedures set for establishing and licensing Futures Exchange and the conditions to be met. He noted that technical cadres shall be trained and develop their skills to start Futures Exchange’s activity, that is through training courses and workshops applied to the scientific aspects of derivatives and methods of pricing and trading, in addition to defining the legislative and regulatory framework for conducting this activity.
