More about FMA Vanuatu

Our organization was formed to bolster Vanuatu’s fast-growing financial industry following a legislation overhaul. “The online financial industry is growing by the day, and the better we compel these companies to set up shop in our jurisdiction, the closer the nation gets to achieving self-reliance and prosperity,” says Roy MacDonald, owner of Corporate Services Limited, one of the six VFSC-registered agents who co-founded FMA Vanuatu. 

Macdonald firmly believes that strengthening Vanuatu’s financial industry will boost the country’s GDP and generate new employment opportunities. This is particularly important in a post-covid world, where travel and tourism, a key component of Vanuatu’s economy, may take years – or even decades – to recover. But to strengthen the industry “we need to foster a well-regulated, fair, and efficient market environment,” he says.

Our organization, located in Port Vila, the country’s capital, was set up to ensure just that. A wave of legislation in recent years has put Vanuatu level with global regulatory standards, making it every bit as stringent as other reputable countries for online dealers to obtain licenses. But we want to strengthen the industry even further through peer-to-peer accountability, lobbying for effective regulation reviews and 100% transparency in governance for financial dealers.

Our founding members are also discussing additional legislative amendments to make world-class best practices part of Vanuatu law. They will also establish a disciplinary committee of members and government regulators that will act as the industry’s self-regulatory body to mediate complaints and implement sanctions when necessary.
