FSA in football crackdown

As one of the biggest financial services regulators in the world, the FSA strikes fear into the hearts of companies, with an array of powers that even Superman would wet his (outside) pants to have. But Money Marketing staff were astonished when a recent article in the Telegraph detailed the FSA&#39s trip to Japan to advise its police force about how best to deal with unruly football hooligans during the World Cup. What is going on, we asked, as visions of Howard Davies sporting a riot helmet and wielding an extendable truncheon flooded our over-active imaginations. Alas, it was not to be – the FSA is question was in fact the Football Supporters&#39 Association and not the UK regulator we all love and admire. Oh well, it was an easy mistake to make.

Employer iPMI responsibilities could continue to escalate, says Jelf

New laws in Dubai will put the burden of providing international private medical insurance (iPMI) firmly on the shoulders of the employer in order to maintain the country’s leading healthcare facilities. With 10,000 UK nationals having moved to the country since 2007 and only 16.5 per cent of the total 8.2 million people living there being Emiratis, Jelf Employee Benefits believes this move was inevitable and employer responsibilities could continue to escalate in future.
