Interaction with the Regulators

Masthead’s relationship with the Regulators

Masthead has a long-standing, collaborative working relationship with the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA). This relationship was established on years of interaction through discussion and input on regulatory matters and our ability to harness constructive and accurate feedback from the IFA market.

The FSCA has valued your participation and input into regulatory and compliance issues and hope that you will continue to actively engage on issues important to advisors into the future as we move towards market conduct supervision.” 
 – Caroline da Silva (Former Deputy Executive Officer: FAIS at the Financial Sector Conduct Authority)

Who is the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and what do they do?

The FSCA is the market conduct regulator of financial institutions and is responsible for the market conduct regulation and supervision in the financial sector. The FSCA’s objective is to protect financial customers by promoting fair treatment, enhancing the integrity of the financial markets and assist in maintaining financial stability.

The FSCA replaced the Financial Services Board (FSB) on 1 April 2018.
