ASIC

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) represents the paramount regulatory authority in Australia for corporate, markets, financial services, and consumer credit. The authority is empowered under the financial service laws to facilitate, regulate, and enforce Australian financial laws. The Australian Commission was originally set up and is currently administered under the Australian Securities and Investment Commission Act of 2001. ASIC was initially formed via the Australian Securities Commission based on the 1989 ASC Act. At its inception, the mandate was to unite regulators in Australia by replacing the National Companies and Securities Commission and the Corporate Affairs offices. Of note, ASIC does not regulate business or register business structures, only business names. In particular, one of the unique features of the Australian regulator is that over 90% of its operating budget comes from fees and fines levies. These fees for service, including company registration fees and licensing fees for banks, brokers, and other financial institutions. What Does ASIC Do for the Public?ASIC is charged with protecting the public and investors from risks and financial fraud.
