Lack of Effectiveness of Internal Controls Evaluation

2011 - 10 - 25

According to the “Code of Internal Controls Implementation for Securities and Options Services”, each securities services shall implement procedures and methods to review its workflow.

依據金管會證期局針對證券事業頒布之「證券暨期貨市場各服務事業建立內部控制制度處理準則」之規定1,各證券服務事業必須在內部控制制度當中制定自行檢查作業之程序及方法,並督促其內部單位每半年辦理自行檢查一次,自行檢查之結果則可以作為日後出具內部控制聲明書之根據。

法規的立意良善,但是證券業實務工作者執行內部控制制度自行檢查作業多年的心得指出2,所謂的自行檢查作業僅僅是各單位將前一年自行檢查工作的電子檔加上當年度內控制度新增訂部份,由稽核單位主導,其他單位配合演出,耗費大量人力物力卻無助實質內控效益的戲碼,充其量就是各單位人員剪貼製作的精美書面報告而已。

1. 參「證券暨期貨市場各服務事業建立內部控制制度處理準則」第20、21條。
2. 參鄭明裕,證券商內部控制制度相關法規與實務執行效益之探討,證券櫃檯雙月刊,97年4月號,54頁。

Video Streaming:

影音串流,這種仗永遠都在打。大咖有 Amazon, Apple, Netflix,小的有 Spotify, KKBOX。玩到 video 量級的,就等於跳了一座山,但這種搶內容授權的競賽本質,是一樣的。 2010年,Netflix 和 Epix(派拉蒙和 MGM 以及 Lions Gate 的合資公司,有多猛你就知道了)簽了張十億美元的獨家授權,2012年到期,所以 Epix 當年就上了 Amazon。 結果,Netflix CCO (Chief Content Officer) 說 “we have decided not to renew our agreement in the US…

The Effectiveness of Start-Up Incubators and Accelerators

Building incubators or accelerators has become a thing in Taiwan. Even governments have allocated funds in the business. 近來在台灣,設育成中心或加速器,變成了顯學,連政府都挹注公部門的資源下來一起做。這二個同樣都屬於「幫早期的創業者長大」的概念,彼此該如何劃分,尚非本文重點;在此僅針對我們所觀察到的怪象,略作省思。 現在從北到南的育成中心,都在做些什麼? (1) 提供Co-working space,一定期間免租金 (2) 提供講師、相關課程 (3) 自己投資一點點資源或資金,再提供與投資人媒合的機會 至於那些「嘴砲打很大、小孩生不出、付錢辦領養」的「掛榜」育成,和三流補習班買考上建中台大的名單有什麼差別? 純粹丟人現眼,在此就不提了。 先檢討上述(1), (2), (3)三項。 〔問〕Co-working space有沒有用? 不能說完全沒有。但重不重要? 〔答〕當然不重要。蛤? 「我還以為創業育成中心主要就是在提供這個啊」?…
