Welcome to the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (the "Commission") Web site. The Commission is responsible for the regulation and supervision of non-banking financial services in Vanuatu. The regulation and supervision of insurance business, investment business and trust and company service providers is undertaken by the Commission.
The Commission has additional responsibilities as tasked with the development of the financial services industry in Vanuatu. While keen to promote the financial centre facilities, the Commission has an unwavering commitment to ensure that the reputation and integrity of the Centre is maintained. Accordingly, international standards have been adopted for insurance, investment business and trust and company service providers sectors.
The Commissioner has additional responsibilities as the Registrar of Companies, Charitable Organizations, UK Patents, UK Trademarks, Credit Unions, Trade Unions, Commissioner of Insurance and Controller of Stamp Duties.
We believe the current overhaul [ began in 2003 ] of the Centre legislative framework will enhance both the reputation of Vanuatu as an international finance centre and investor confidence in our jurisdiction.
We welcome suggestions to improve the Website and if there is any additional information you should require, please do contact us and we will try our best to assist you.
I thank you for taking the time to find out more about the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission and the Vanuatu Finance Centre.
