Banking and financial system

Regulation of banking and financial matters involve the establishment of primary and secondary rules  governing intermediaries and markets, also dealt with at European Union and international level.

As to financial matters, the Department of the Treasury carries out studies and defines policies concerning the functioning of financial markets, through national and European regulatory activities as well as through participation in the appropriate institutional arenas. The Treasury participates in the surveillance  of markets and intermediaries.

The Department of the Treasury also supervises banking foundations on a legal level by examining and approving of their  by-laws and on an accounting level, by controlling their portfolio management and financial statements. The Treasury also issues general policies concerning investment diversification in relation to an appropriate risk-return ratio  and controls the sale process.
