List of Financial Regulators

We include in this section as well our list of reputable national financial regulators. These are official governmental oversight agencies that license and monitor brokerages, banks and other financial institutions. 

You can and should consult with your national regulator to verify that any investment opportunity you are considering is properly licensed in your country. If it is not, then go no further. Consider that a red flag. Regulators are also an appropriate address for filing complaints regarding financial service providers they do license and supervise.

Keep in mind that financial service providers such as brokerages that are headquartered abroad must have a locally-issued license to service residents of your own country. Inquiring with the regulator in the country in which the service provider claims to be registered is insufficient because, in all likelihood, it will not necessarily know the answer to that question. You must inquire with your own national regulator to obtain an authoritative response.

commonly used by banks, credit card networks and government agencies. Just in case you’re not
familiar with them and their precise definitions, you will find here in our Knowledge Center a
comprehensive Glossary of Terms.
