Financial Policies Monitor

Based on the Strategic Directions and Priorities 2015–2016, announced in September 2015, the FSA has established the Financial Policies Monitor (System) to receive candid opinions and suggestions concerning financial policies and to reflect these in the FSA’s financial policies. This approach is aimed at establishing a structure to conduct proactive financial policies to keep pace with the changes in the domestic and global environment surrounding the financial fields.

Reference: “2015-2016 Strategic Directions and Priorities”

The FSA has used various measures to seek opinions from financial institutions and the general public regarding financial policies in the past, but the financial institutions have pointed out that it is not always easy to express candid opinions when the contact person is a FSA official. In light of such comments, the FSA has established a Contact for Financial Policies Monitor in which external experts (Financial Policies Monitors as per below) receive opinions and suggestions as neutral third parties and convey such opinions and suggestions to the FSA for reflection in its financial policies.

Send your opinions and suggestions to the Contact for Financial Policies Monitor.

In an attempt to continue efforts to seek opinions and suggestions on financial policies, the FSA has also opened a Contact for the FSA in order to continue to receive comments directly at the FSA.

The FSA would like to continue its efforts to pursue better financial policies, and it encourages your active use of these contacts.
