The Financial Services Commission
The Financial Services Commission (FSC) was established as the regulator for the non-bank financial services sector under the Financial Services Development Act 2001. The FSC is the integrated regulator for the industry and its remit encompasses those of the former regulatory bodies for securities (Stock Exchange Commission), insurance (Insurance Division of the Ministry of Economic Development, Financial Services and Corporate Affairs) and global business (Mauritius Offshore Business Activities Authority).
The Commission thus licenses, regulates and supervises non-bank financial institutions in Mauritius.
The non-bank financial sector includes institutions involved in Insurance & Pensions, Capital Market operations, Leasing & Credit Finance as well as Global Business activities.
The FSC is also committed to the sustained development of Mauritius as a sound, stable and competitive international financial services centre. Consequently, the Commission promotes the development, fairness, efficiency and transparency of non-bank financial institutions and capital markets in Mauritius whilst ensuring the protection of investors.
