The plan is to implement 32 initiatives in the areas of regulation, prudential and market conduct supervision, sanctioning procedures, and institutional development. The key initiatives in the plan involve the implementation of Basel III standards, a bill to strengthen the legal framework for bank resolution, and a definitive bill for fintech regulation in securities.
The strategic plan is intended to strengthen the regulatory and supervisory capacities of CMF to safeguard the solvency of institutions, propagate adequate market conduct and protection of financial customers, and address the challenges and opportunities resulting from technological breakthroughs in the financial markets. The following are the key highlights of the plan:
