Investment is indispensable in the financial sector and deemed as an important element for economic growth. It can help individuals to build wealth and support businesses to achieve long-term financial goals. Therefore, financial regulators play a big role in maintaining trust and integrity in the financial system, especially in today’s constantly changing market. As a pre-eminent financial services group, Doo Prime’s holding company, Doo Group, always promotes ethical business practices across all of our operations. And that is why Doo Group has acquired full-fledged financial regulatory licenses across various countries and regions.
In this article, we would like to share about one of Doo Group’s licenses granted by the prestigious world-class financial regulator, the Australian Financial Services (AFS) License, and how to undergo the license verification process of a company.
About The ASIC
Granted by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), the AFS License is a license that allows company to conduct a financial services business. ASIC is an independent Australian Government body that regulates the county’s financial markets and services to assure a fair and transparent financial environment.
In compliance with international standards and norms, the regulator is set up and mandated under the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 (ASIC Act).
Upholding the core values of accountability, professionalism and teamwork, ASIC adheres rigorously to the global supervisory framework, in order to protect the consumers’ rights and benefits.
Just like here in Doo Group, our vision is strongly driven by our client-centric culture. This is what made the Group apply for a financial services license from the ASIC. Under the administration of the regulator, Doo Financial Australia Limited under Doo Group is authorized to conduct relevant financial services and business in Australia.
