Labuan FSA Issues New Guidelines for Labuan Protected Cell Companies and Labuan Securities Licensees, Including Islamic Securities Licensees
Labuan Financial Services Authority (Labuan FSA) on 11 December 2013 issued the following two guidelines, which will come into effect on 1 January 2014:
  1. Guidelines on the Establishment of Labuan Protected Cell Companies; and 
  2. Guidelines on the Establishment of Labuan Securities Licensees, Including Islamic Securities Licensees.

Guidelines on the Establishment of Labuan Protected Cell Companies


The new guidelines seek to clarify the position of a Labuan protected cell company (PCC) as a single legal entity that may establish one or more cells for the purpose of segregating and protecting cell assets. Each cell is not a separate legal entity but part of the Labuan PCC.
Labuan legal framework for PCC was introduced in 2009 and Labuan International Business and Financial Centre (Labuan IBFC) remains the only jurisdiction in the Asian region with a dedicated PCC legislative structure. The new guidelines help support and reinforce the jurisdiction’s commitment in creating a more transparent and business-friendly environment.

Guidelines on the Establishment of Labuan Securities Licensees, Including Islamic Securities Licensees

The new guidelines seek to clarify the application procedures, operational and regulatory requirements of a Labuan securities licensee operating in Labuan IBFC in both the conventional and Islamic space. A Labuan securities licensee refers to a person who provides investment advice or administrative services for the purpose of investment and dealing in securities.

For the comprehensive guidelines on Labuan PCCs and Labuan securities licensees, please refer to the attachments.

Labuan IBFC
