On 1 November 2015 the Isle of Man Financial Supervision Commission and Isle of Man Insurance and Pensions Authority merged to create the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority (“the Authority”). Please follow this link for information released in the lead up to the merger.

The Authority is the primary regulator of financial services business on the Isle of Man. The Authority aims to provide a framework of regulation and oversight which satisfies international standards, whilst enabling regulated entities to compete and develop their businesses.

The legislation and guidance is intended to provide a clear, sound and stable framework, resulting in a firm basis for the confidence of depositors, investors, insurance policyholders and scheme members.
