Egypt's Central Bank is currently holding intensive meetings with local banks, seeking to issue new regulations for 'Internet Banking' service, a source with knowledge of the matter told Amwal Al Ghad. The source stated that the new regulations and standards shall ensure safe and secured internet banking services and comply with the Basel II's rules. Yet, the source declined to disclose those measures until being finalised by the CBE. The CBE had signed along with a group of global central banks an agreement to adopt the terms and regulations Basel II Act for capital adequacy. Basel II comprises three 'pillars'. The first deals with minimum capital requirements and specifies that banks hold a certain amount of capital proportional to their risks. Internal risk management is the basis of the second pillar, ensuring that banks hedge against non-quantifiables such as operational risk, rather than solely on loans as was previously the case. The third pillar deals with market discipline and obliges banks to meet tougher disclosure rules. Meanwhile, Abdel Hamid Soliman - Chairman of IT Committee, Federation of Egyptian Banks (FEB) said CBE has formed a new committee to adopt the new standards of internet banking services, which will be announced later within the coming period. Moreover, Yehia El Agamy – Head of Retail Banking Division at Banque Misr – elaborated that the CBE is a step behind preparing the new standards regulating the internet banking. He added that banks operating in Egypt asked the CBE to adopt new applications and services for internet banking. More»

JPMorgan Chase & Co was again ranked the top investment bank by revenue in the first quarter with $5.9 billion, according to a new survey published on Wednesday. In a repeat of the previous year's results, the U.S. bank came ahead of rivals Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Citi, which all tied for second place, according to industry analytics firm Coalition. Morgan Stanley finished sixth, while Barclays and Credit Suisse came joint seventh. Coalition, which only gives revenue figures for the top-ranked bank in categories including equities and advisory, said that JPMorgan's investment banking revenue in the first quarter fell by almost 15 percent from $6.9 billion in the same period last year. Most investment banks have seen trading revenues slump over the past year amid a low interest rate environment and tougher regulations requiring them to hold more capital, which have driven down returns.

Egypt's Banque Du Caire has signed today an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the US tax authority, to adopt the FATCA law (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). As pursuant to the agreement, Banque Du Caire CEO Mounir El Zahed stated that his bank is currently taking all the necessary measures and making the technical amendments required to meet with the terms and conditions of FATCA. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was signed into law on 18 March 2010. Its purpose is to uncover U.S. persons who may be evading U.S. taxes by investing through foreign financial institutions (FI) or other foreign entities. Countries that do not adopt the law may face punishment from the US government. In this respect, Banque Du Caire has established a new committee dedicated for adopting the US legislation, said Hafez Aboul Azm - Head of Banking Compliance and Institution Governance at the bank. Moreover, Banque Du Caire has also endorsed a new automated system, Aboul Azm noted, adding it comes as a prelude to adopting the US FATCA by the beginning of July, 2014. Established in the middle of the 20th century, Banque Du Caire exists in 228 branches and banking units nationwide, with more than 424 ATMs located across the nation to serve around 3.8 million customers.
