An agent is an individual who acts as an intermediary between a seller and an investor.
They typically work as an agent on a transaction for the seller and then deliver the product or service to the investor, for example, to help them buy a home or purchase an asset.
Agents are required to register with the regulator, which will require the agent to provide information about their activities and their responsibilities to the regulator.
In order to register as an authorised agent, an agent must complete a form and present it to the company in person.
Agent registration requires the agent a bank account, bank account details and bank transfer details.
The agent must also complete a declaration stating that he or she is not an employee of the company, that he/she is not employed by the company or that he will not charge the company any commission for any product or services provided by the agent.
As the agent registers with the company and holds the registration, the company can use the information to make the agent eligible to buy and sell securities.
Agents can sell shares in their own companies, but only if the share price is below a certain level.
The level of the share can also be changed.
The regulator has also proposed a rule that will make it easier for agents to make a profit through selling securities.
The regulator says it will also help companies to increase the efficiency of their transactions.
The regulator says a number of companies are already in the process of making their agents more efficient and will soon launch an initiative to improve the financial efficiency of agents.
The government has also introduced new rules for the registration of agents and an amendment to the Registration of Agents Act.
New registration rules will be effective from November 1.
The government has proposed to make it simpler for agents, as well as for investors and businesses to register agents, but has not yet said when these changes will take effect.
The National Securities Markets Authority (NSMA) is responsible for ensuring that the securities industry is sound and safe.
The authority will also set up a regulatory committee to ensure that the new rules are implemented in a timely manner.
