EFFICIENCY is the watchword of the chairman of the Guernsey Financial Services Commission for 2013.

But Cees Schrauwers, pictured, told the commission’s annual industry presentation that progress was unlikely to happen overnight and warned the commission’s many industry critics that he wanted to hear specific complaints, not general moaning, if they were unhappy.

‘I hear people say: “He’s a good talker – but does he walk the walk?”’ Dr Schrauwers told a packed St James.

‘It takes nine months to make a baby. You can’t go any faster than that. Sometimes time needs to elapse to do things.

‘I am a businessman who has dealt with regulators the world over. I know what businessmen want from a regulator and I want Guernsey to be as effective as it possibly can.'

The GFSC is giving businessmen the world over what they want. Plenty of warning and time to play the shell game with their assets before any unfavorable legislation is passed

He could've made a bit more effort with his Movember offering.

How about looking at sustainable pension schemes. Especially to new entrants like the one that will replace you?

Using items for longer... I hear everything was new for the move to the new office.

The GFSC already has a DC scheme for new entrants and has had for years.

The DB scheme has been closed to new enrants for years.
