The FIN-FSA makes available information on the supervised entities’ financial position and regulatory changes, on a regular basis. We are also tasked with the duty of increasing general awareness of the financial markets, of any topical issues of relevance to the public and of new products and services launched on the market.
We publish annually more than 20 press releases and arrange 2–3 press conferences. In addition, our experts publish blogs on matters of topical interest and advertise them on our twitter account Twitter.com/FIN_FSA. We communicate directly with our supervised entities through supervision releases.
Our Market Newsletter addresses, for example, insider issues concerning listed companies and issues related to disclosure requirements and prospectus supervision.
