BaFin

Foreign supervisory authorities

Fully functional supervisory authorities are the hallmark of every financial centre around the world. However, the specific structures of individual supervisory authorities are very different.

For instance, not every country adopts the approach of integrated financial supervision of the sort that has been put in place in Germany with BaFin. Sometimes the supervisory authority is also part of the central bank. BaFin maintains close contacts with most supervisory authorities, building even further on these relationships through its membership of various international committees.

Here you will find links that will take you directly to various supervisory authorities.
