The Danish FSA, also known as the Finanstilsynet, is the regulatory agency for the supervision and licensing of financial entities in Denmark.
It was created in 1988 following the merger of the Insurance Supervisory Authority and the Supervisory Authority for Banks and Savings Banks. It had more responsibilities added to its remit when it took over from the Supervisory Authority for Mortgage Credit Institutions in 1990.
The Danish FSA is responsible for the smooth functioning majority of Denmark’s financial system, which includes banks, securities markets, money brokers, payment systems, stock exchanges, insurance, pensions, fund management, investment companies, auditors, and all financial market participants that deal with the financial system of the country. Forex brokers, CFD dealers, and businesses that provide a multitude of OTC products come under the direct regulation of the Danish FSA.
