Welcome to the QFC Regulatory Authority, the independent regulator of the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), established to authorise and regulate firms and individuals conducting financial services in or from the QFC.

Since its establishment by Emiri Decree in 2005, the QFC Regulatory Authority has built a principle-based regulatory regime modeled closely on other major financial centres that embraces transparency, predictability and accountability.

Through its work in policy development, supervision and (where necessary) enforcement, the QFC Regulatory Authority operates to the highest international standards of regulation and best practice.
