Economic Court Restores Certainty to Profit Test for Dividend Distributions
The Tel Aviv District Court (Economic Department) has restored certainty to directors in relation to the profit test for dividend distributions. The court ruled that the profit test is a retroactive technical test, unless the directors are aware of a major event that could materially change the company’s accounting position.
Relief from Insurance Requirements for Portfolio Managers and Investment Advisors
The Israel Securities Authority (ISA) has announced that, temporarily, it will not initiate or recommend taking enforcement measures against corporations licensed in portfolio management, investment advising, and investment marketing that have not fulfilled professional liability insurance requirements.
Regulation of Broker-Dealer Activity
While the activity of most financial intermediaries in Israel is regulated and supervised, broker-dealers have so far operated in an unsupervised manner and without dedicated regulation. In light of this, the Israel Securities Authority has published a legislative memorandum aimed at regulating the field of broker-dealers in Israel.
