A keypillar of the FSTAP is to strengthen the legal, regulatory, and supervisory framework for financial consumer protection, and toimprove the monitoring, coordination, and quality of financial capability enhancing programs. Activities under this component arebased on the recognition that an effective and well-enforced financial consumer protection and financial capability framework,which engenders trust and confidence in the financial sector, helps ensure that financial inclusion has positive impacts onhouseholds, firms, and the broader financial sector and economy. This is because, while increased access can result in significanteconomic and societal benefits and enhance financial stability, it can be neutral or even harmful, if consumers are not able to:(i) exercise their rights as consumers; (ii) select the financial products that suit them best; and (iii) be protected frommis-selling, fraud, and other market abuses. An effective framework for market conduct and consumer protection needs to be builtupon five main pillars: (i) a comprehensive regulatory framework covering areas such as equitable and fair treatment of consumers,disclosure and transparency, responsible business conduct, protection of consumer data and privacy, and protection against frauds;(ii) effective institutional arrangements ensuring independence, cooperation, coordination and accountability; (iii) risk-basedsupervision and credible enforcement; (iv) effective complaints handling and redress mechanisms; and (v) financial capability andawareness. Effective risk-based market supervision must ensure that the supervised entities follow the requirements of the legal andregulatory framework (compliance) and that scarce supervisory resources arespent efficiently on activities that bestreflect the supervisor's knowledge of the market as well as of existing and emerging risks (risks). Further, effective marketconduct supervision needs to make use of the traditional supervisory tools (e.g. onsite and offsite examinations) as well as marketconduct specific tools such as mystery shopping, collection and assessment of consumer complaints, consumer surveys andfocusgroups. Independent market conduct supervision as an activity separate from prudential supervision is still relatively new. One ofthe key challenges faced by supervisors in different countries is how toidentify and measure market conduct risks at both the macroand microlevel. Market conduct supervision is predominantly focused on consumer relationships and thus risk assessment is concernedwith the impact that any violation of law committed by a financial institution may have on consumer(s). This creates new challengespreviously unknown to prudential supervisors concerned mainly with the impact of law violations on institutions' liquidity andsolvency. Moreover, while prudential rules (and thus supervision) are quantitative in nature (e.g. capital and provisioningrequirements), market conduct rules are more qualitative in nature (e.g. fair treatment of clients and advice requirements).Compliance and the relevant risks are thus more difficult to measurein a market conduct context, as is the appropriate targeting ofsupervisory activities. 4.     Objectives of the consultancy The consultant providing theservices the subject of these Terms of Reference (Resident Advisor) will work in close collaboration with the Director of the Microfinance and Capital MarketsSupervision Department in the RBM (Department). The main objectives of the assignment are to support the Department in: (i)  developing a market conduct risk-based supervisionframework and in piloting related market conduct off-site and on-site examinations; (ii)  developing operational manuals for market conduct supervision; (iii) capacitybuilding for  supervisors in RBM on  market conduct supervision; (iv) advising as to optionsfor an international best practice institutional framework in relation to an external dispute resolution for financial sectorconsumers; and (v) developing the market conduct legal and regulatory framework through providing advisory inputs into draftsprepared by RBM. 5.    Scope of the Assignment The Resident Advisor is expected to carry out the following tasks: a)              Develop a framework and guidelines on a market conduct risk-based supervision framework and a related implementation roadmap based on international best practices including in relation to: (i)             Off-site analysis and inspection; (ii)           On-siteexamination; (iii)         Data andanalysis; (iv)          Market conduct supervisory toolsincluding mystery shopping, review of advertising and product materials and information, complaints analysis, consumer focus groupsand surveys; and (v)           Processes andprocedures forhandling complaints from financial sector consumers byRBM (to the extent consistent with the RBM's functions). b)             Develop operations manuals setting out the processes and procedures required for the purposes of the abovementioned marketconduct risk ? based supervision framework. c)              Assess and build internal capacity on market conduct supervision and other consumer protection issues to a levelappropriate to RBM's functions and powers and having regard to the Malawi legal and regulatory framework. d)             Advise as to options for an international best practice institutional framework for resolution of disputes betweenfinancial institutions and including an implementation plan for the preferred option. e)              Provide advisory inputs into changes to the market conduct legal and regulatory framework prepared by the Department,including new Directives on disclosures and business conduct. f)              Participate in consultation workshops with stakeholders as agreed with the Director of theDepartment. g)             Carry out additional complementary tasks as reasonably requested by the Director of the Department and within theanticipated scope of effort.
