Governance

 

Accountability and impartiality are both crucial to the success of the FSC. To achieve these objectives, the Financial Services Commission Act establishes a Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners is the governing body of the FSC and is among other things, responsible for:

  • Establishing policy for the FSC and monitoring and overseeing its implementation: and
  • Monitoring and overseeing the management of the FSC with the objective of ensuring that the resources of the FSC are utilised economically and efficiently

The Board of Commissioners is comprised of the Managing Director as an ex officio member and not less than four or more than six other members. Persons eligible for appointment to the Board of Commissioners must be fit and proper and possess relevant knowledge, experience and expertise in financial services matters to aid the FSC in the performance of its functions.
