A regulator's perspective on key challenges
A speech by ASIC Chairman, Tony D'Aloisio, to the Monash Centre for Regulatory Studies and Clayton Utz Luncheon Lecture, 11 March 2010
Today I want to talk with you about how ASIC goes about discharging its role of assisting and protecting retail investors and consumers in the financial markets and the financial economy. In doing so, I will convey to you not only the challenges we face but importantly how we have met these challenges for the benefit of retail investors and financial consumers.
Assisting and protecting them is one of ASIC’s top 3 priorities in the regulation of financial markets. The other 2 important and complementary priorities for the financial markets are maintaining confidence in the integrity of the capital markets and assisting the inflow of investment and dealing with the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
And our priority of assisting and protecting retail investors and financial consumers is backed by real resources.
