Financial markets fund the economy and, in turn, economic growth. But they can’t do this without the trust and confidence of investors.
ASIC focuses on investor trust and confidence through its work to ensure Australia’s financial markets are fair and efficient.
We do this by:
- conducting surveillances of Australia's markets
- making market integrity rules
- authorising and assessing the operation of market infrastructure providers
- taking action where misconduct threatens market integrity and investor confidence.
