Financial activities are highly regulated in Monaco.
In addition to several laws that define their scope and regulations, there are several bodies that manage its effective operation.
These are the SICCFIN, CCAF, AMAF and AMCO.
Monaco Association for Financial Activities (AMAF) was founded by Sovereign Order more than fifty years ago. Its mission is to:
- act as the professional body for authorized institutions conducting banking or financial activities in the Principality,
- represent the Monegasque banking industry, particularly in relations with public authorities,
- promote the sound development of Monaco's banking sector.
The Commission de Contrôle des Activités Financières (Financial Activities Supervisory Commission) was founded under law 1.338 of 7 September 2007. It is an independent administrative authority responsible for regulating Monaco’s financial marketplace.
The Service d’Information et de Contrôle sur les Circuits Financiers is the national central authority responsible for collecting, analyzing and disseminating information related to the fight against money laundering, terrorist financing and corruption.
