The DFSA is the independent regulator for the DIFC, a financial free-zone established in Dubai, UAE.
• We authorise and register institutions and individuals who wish to conduct financial or ancillary services from the DIFC;
• We supervise regulated participants and monitor their compliance with the laws, regulations and rules that apply; and,
• We enforce the legislation that we administer.
Our regulatory regime has been tailor-made to suit the DIFC, to the highest international standards. The result is clear and succinct legislation that is appropriate for a modern financial centre.
