This article examines the implementation of the Twin Peaks model of financial system regulation in South Africa, the purpose of which is to create a financial system stability regulator, and a financial system consumer protection and market conduct regulator. It examines the historical development of Twin Peaks and its regulatory enforcement principles. It then analyses the similarities and differences between Twin Peaks in Australia (upon which the South African reforms are based) and South Africa. Finally the article provides concluding observations.
