The FSB is an independent institution, established by statute to oversee the South African non-banking financial
services industry in the public interest, and fully funded by fees and levies imposed on this industry.
After more than 20 years of regulating the non-banking sector of South Africa’s financial services industry,
the FSB has established itself as a reputable authority in this field, locally and internationally. Over the years,
it has contributed to the stability of this industry while meeting its mandate of protecting consumers of financial products and services.
The FSB has developed and maintained a strong, effective presence in the regulatory field, in South Africa and internationally,
while working closely with its counterparts elsewhere in Africa to establish solid regulatory frameworks.
