Licensed and exempt markets

A financial market is a facility through which offers to buy and sell financial products are regularly made.

Anyone who operates a financial in Australia must obtain a licence to do so, or otherwise be exempted by the Minister (or an ASIC delegate).

ASIC is responsible for the supervision of operators of financial markets. We advise the Government (or an ASIC delegate) on changes to licensee operating rules and on applications for new market licences.
