IFSC (International Financial Services Commission)

IFSC (International Financial Services Commission)

The IFSC' mandate includes:

  • Promoting and developing Belize as a center for international financial services.
  • Protecting and enhancing the reputation of Belize as an offshore financial center.
  • Providing appropriate supervision and regulation of international financial services.
  • Formulating policies and providing advice and assistance to the government on the regulation of such services.
  • Collecting, storing and disseminating reliable and timely information to interested parties on changes and new trends in these services.
  • The Commission relies on self-regulation, meaning that while government sets overall standards, it expects much of the actual work in terms of monitoring and compliance to be done by the industry itself.

    The Commission has recently issued licensing regulations to licence all international financial services providers. The licensing process is designed to ensure that only 'fit and proper persons' are allowed to provide, carry on or transact international financial services in or from within Belize.

    In addition, the Commission is developing a statutory Code of Conduct for international financial services providers, to ensure compliance with internationally-accepted best practices by all services providers.

    Belize is an active member of the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) and subscribes to its core principles to eradicate money laundering and to foster stability in the global financial system. Belize has also made a commitment at the political level to adhere to the objectives of the U.N. Offshore Forum on Money Laundering.
