The Astana Financial Services Authority (AFSA) has issued the Consultation Paper № AFSA-P-CE-2022-0004 to seek suggestions on the proposed amendments to the AIFC Banking Business Framework. The proposals in the consultation paper will be of interest to current and potential AIFC participants who are interested in exercising business activities in or from the AIFC, especially in the capacity of a Credit Provider. The proposed amendments ensure effective and fair prudential regulation of Credit Providers considering their differences from Banks. Additionally, this Consultation Paper envisages provisions of captive finance activities from the AIFC, which involve subsidiaries that typically finance purchases of equipment from their parent entity.
