About FMA Vanuatu

We are the self-regulatory body for Vanuatu financial dealers.

The Financial Markets Association of Vanuatu is a charitable organization registered in the Republic of Vanuatu, in the Southwest Pacific region. It was founded by six Registered Agents of the Financial Dealer Licensing (FDL) scheme, all long-standing members of the Vanuatu Financial Centre Association. Its main purpose is to act as a self-regulatory body for Vanuatu licensees trading financial instruments and securities online.

For our members, the highest standards are standard.

Vanuatu’s financial industry is acutely aware of the risk for financial crime in a globalized, virtual marketplace, and has grown wary of unethical market participants who may threaten our reputation and the economic sustainability of our nation.

Our members work together to develop, implement and enforce the highest professional standards above and beyond existing regulation, in order to protect our industry from financial crime, earn the trust of our partners and customers, and contribute to Vanuatu’s prosperity in the long term.

Defining professionalism, together.

Our members are committed to base their conduct on these four pillars of professionalism:

  • Accountability
  • Expertise
  • Efficiency
  • Fairness


In September 2020, FMA Vanuatu held its first General Assembly and elected its first Committee. Various sub-committees will also be set up, most notably for dispute resolution. Current Committee members are:

  • Martin St-Hilaire (AJC), President
  • Preyanka Philip (iCount), Treasurer
  • Mathilde Augerd (Law Partners), Secretary
  • Daniel Agius (iCount), Vice-President
