12 FBI SETAs’ STAKEHOLDER VIEWS ON PROPOSED MERGER _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ INSETA LOA SAIA IIEA IBSA SASBO FPI BIPSA Not supportive of merger FASSET SAICA Employers ABASA Not supportive of merger BANKSETA Banking Council SASBO IBSA Micro lenders Not supportive of merger

13 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Advantages One-stop shop for all financial sector stakeholders Employers Employees Regulators (FSB, Reserve Bank, JSE) Professional Bodies Trade Associations Learning Providers Etc Most powerful SETA in terms of SD Levy income Approx. R400m/year Operational budget of R40m

14 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Advantages (2) Integrated approach to the implementation of skills development, NQF and projects across all three sectors Economies of scale in appointment of service providers, implementation of projects Synergies in terms of operations, projects Chamber model + centralised operations

15 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Advantages (3) Standardised approach in supporting stakeholders in the implementation of the human resource development issues of the Financial Sector Charter & FAIS Act Should the same level of good corporate governance, management performance, operational excellence and implementation of innovative projects be achieved as is the case in all three separate SETAs, the new SETA will be well-positioned to establish itself as the benchmark for all other SETAs

16 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Disadvantages × Cost associated with a merger Retrenchments Establishment, e.g. new offices, corporate identity, etc (±R8m) Higher running cost of new SETA (±R3,5m/year) × Insurance sector will loose its dedicated SETA to serve its unique needs – non-compatibility with banking and accounting professional/educational requirements × Negative impact on the implementation of skills development and the NQF in the sector – delivery would probably be SEVERELY disrupted

17 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Disadvantages (2) ×Implementation of projects and initiatives for 2004/5 – spending negatively impacted upon as delivery slows down FAIS Support Financial Sector Charter Support Pension Fund Trustee Training FSC Learnerships – NSF funds for 2005/6 will be in jeopardy × Immediate effect on INSETA staff (“SMME”: Permanent staff = 14) Uncertainty/insecurity Possible job-seeking Capacity of INSETA will be affected by resignations Inward focus Service levels could be affected

18 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Disadvantages (3) ×Approach to implement skills development, NQF and projects of the three SETAs differ significantly, as well as its organisational cultures ×Politics of a merger – protection of sectoral and organisational turf, jockeying for positions, negotiations between interim structures ×New Constitution and governance & organisational structures, including representation, will have to be negotiated ×Establishment of new governance & organisational structures - nominations, selection of members, etc ×Revision, integration and standardisation of all existing policies/procedures & projects

19 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Disadvantages (4) ×Physical establishment of new organisation Location of new offices & move to offices Integration of IT systems ×Appointment of new personnel, e.g. CEO – impact on existing staff, impact on culture of the organisation ×Time factor associated with the establishment of a new SETA – Between 12 to 18 months before new structure has settled and becomes fully operational and delivery reaches the levels of the pre-merger era ×No guarantee that FBISETA will be a better performing SETA than the three separate entities – “if it works, don’t fix it” ×Too early in the system too change

20 INSETA VIEW ON PROPOSED “FBISETA” MERGER _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Conclusion All three Financial Services SETAs are financially viable, well governed, managed and performing No compelling business case for merger Negative impact on delivery Core operations Projects, especially those in support of FAIS & FS Charter High costs of re-establishment and higher running costs of new SETA, depending on structures ±R8m – establishment ±R3.5m/year more in operational costs = ±R25m over 5-year period ( ) on operations No guarantee that new merged SETA will be an improvement on the three separate SETAs

21 WAY FORWARD ________________________________________________________ Business as usual for INSETA and all stakeholders Industry stakeholders’ views to be canvassed Stakeholders encouraged to submit comments to NSA/DoL: Government Gazette No , dated 01/10/2004 (30 day period) INSETA will participate in public hearings if given the opportunity – IIEA (Employers) & IBSA (Labour) Preferable that finality is reached as soon as possible INSETA, BANKSETA & FASSET in continuous consultation
