The Monetary Authority of Singapore

« Back to Glossary Index

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is the central bank of Singapore, responsible for maintaining price stability and promoting sustainable economic growth. In addition to its monetary policy responsibilities, the MAS is also responsible for regulating financial institutions in Singapore, including banks, insurance companies, and securities firms.

The MAS has a number of regulatory requirements that financial institutions must comply with in order to operate in Singapore. Some key requirements include:

  1. Anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) regulations: Financial institutions in Singapore are required to have effective AML/CFT policies and procedures in place to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing.
  2. Capital adequacy requirements: Banks and other financial institutions are required to maintain sufficient capital to ensure they can absorb losses and continue to operate even in times of financial stress.
  3. Cybersecurity regulations: The MAS has issued guidelines on cybersecurity that financial institutions must follow to protect themselves and their customers from cyber threats.
  4. Data protection regulations: Financial institutions in Singapore are required to comply with the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), which sets out rules on the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data.
