Policy, Research & Statistics
The Policy, Research & Statistics Section plays an integral role in the organization. It is focused around the development of the FSA’s regulatory and legislative framework in line with international standards and best practice, while ensuring the continued growth of a robust non-bank financial services industry. In line with its functions, the section also provides support to the other technical sections of the FSA as well as liaising with other stakeholders involved in the regulation and development of the financial services legislation including the private and the public sector.
The policy ambit of the FSA is responsible for providing policy-oriented research and analysis on a wide range of issues relating to the financial services sector and translating these policies into legislations, codes and guidelines. The Section is proactively involved in the monitoring of international regulatory developments, as well as ensuring that the FSA remains compliant with these various international standards by shaping appropriate policies. Product development is also one of the core functions of the Section to ensure the continued development of the sector. A key element in this process is the engagement of various stakeholders to ensure that policy decisions are as inclusive as possible.
