Established in August 2001 with the Financial Services Commission Act, the Financial Services Commission (FSC) replaced the Office of the Superintendent of Insurance (OSI) and Unit Trusts and the Securities Commission.
As a self-financing regulatory body, we assume wide-ranging authority to supervise, investigate and sanction entities falling under our jurisdiction. Initially, our supervisory practices initially placed significant weight on prudential supervision. We focused on solvency, the quality of internal controls, risk management and corporate governance within regulated institutions.
Over time, we absorbed the functions of the Office of the Superintendent of Insurance, the Office of the Superintendent of Unit Trusts and the Securities Commission. Our charge is to supervise our licensees under the FSC, Insurance, Securities and Unit Trusts Acts. We also regulate private pension schemes through the Pensions (Superannuation Funds and Retirements Schemes) Act of 2004 (The Pensions Act).
