What we do

The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) has established itself as an agency with a critical role in regulating capital markets and financial services in New Zealand.  

As a risk-based conduct regulator, we focus our resources on conduct that we think poses the most significant risk to achieving this objective.

Our main vision is to promote and facilitate the development of fair, efficient and transparent financial markets.
