23 March 2015
The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) is launching a refreshed website this week, making it easier for regulated businesses to quickly find the information they need. Visitors to the website will notice a simplified design, plus much-improved navigation and search functionality.
The refreshed and redesigned website is a response to businesses and professionals who say they value easily-accessible online information to assist them to comply with regulation, and to keep pace with information provided by the FMA.
“The FMA prioritises effective and user-friendly communications, particularly for financial services firms relying on the information we produce to help them comply with regulations, and understand our priorities,” says external communications director, Owen Gill.
The FMA publishes information including guidance notes, consultation documents, and information sheets on its website. It also publishes detailed reports on the results and outcomes of its regulatory work.
The consumer section on the FMA’s site provides information aimed at helping investors make better-informed investment decisions. Some downloadable resources are also available. The FMA is continuing improvements to content on the website post-launch.

Other changes to the website include news, calendars, and consultation notices hosted on the homepage. The new website is also mobile and tablet compatible. Users can filter compliance content by ‘market participant’ role as well as by ‘topic’. Also, the FMA’s subscriber-based email, FMA Update, is redesigned as an insights-led newsletter, and integrated with the website. Information on the FMA Update and news, such as guidance and media release notifications, is available here.
