The Securities Commission (SC) and Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) are coming out with the framework to streamline the qualifications for financial planners by year-end or early next year, SC executive director Datuk Siow Kim Lun said.

Currently, there are two different types of licences for financial planners, which are issued by the SC and BNM, respectively, he told FinancialDaily after launching the Financial Expo (Finex) 2006 in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 17.
