Our Supervision and Authorisation division consists of the Authorisation, Macroprudential Analysis, Supervision (comprising the Bank and Insurance Supervision and Investment Manager, Advisor and Securities Supervision), and Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) departments.
We pursue a risk-based approach to supervision that includes monitoring financial information and regular on-site and off-site risk assessments. We are guided in our work by the various international supervisory standards issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
In addition to closely supervising risk at our authorised firms, we track and evaluate risks and trends at the aggregate macroprudential level. Our management team includes risk management experts with extensive regulatory and industry experience who provide leadership and independent expertise from a macroprudential perspective. This practice safeguards stability within the QFC and also provides a model for financial industry risk management best practices across Qatar and in the region.
