Financial Markets Conduct Act

Page last updated: 21 Feb 2019

The Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMC Act) lays the groundwork for us to provide high-quality regulation in capital markets and financial services here in New Zealand. It is the largest statutory change in our financial markets in at least 30 years and ensures regulation keeps pace with investor and business expectations.

The FMC Act gives us a much bigger mandate in our role as conduct regulator and brings extensive new responsibilities in licensing, supervision and enforcement. As a result of this changing landscape, everyday New Zealanders can expect to experience the facilitation and promotion of fair, efficient and transparent financial markets.
