The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency of Turkey (BRSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-operate and exchange supervisory and enforcement information, as well as foster the implementation of high regulatory standards in both jurisdictions. 

The MOU was signed on 17 June 2016 by Mehmet Ali Akben, Chairman of the Turkish BSRA and Richard Teng, Chief Executive Officer of the ADGM FSRA.

This partnership reinforces ADGM’s commitment as an international financial centre to build stronger and closer ties with well-established financial centres in the region and beyond, and paves the way for close collaboration. The agreement provides a framework for BRSA and FSRA to render mutual assistance, exchange regulatory information and co-operate in supervision of cross-border establishments.

Ali Akben says, “We are confident that the Memorandum will contribute to the increasing cooperation between Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Abu Dhabi and the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency of Turkey. We look forward to further enhancing the scope of our cooperation with FSRA.”

Teng says: “The partnership with the Turkish BRSA demonstrates FSRA’s commitment in establishing cooperative arrangements and cross-border collaboration with our international counterparts. We look forward to further strengthen our ties with regional authorities to maintain an efficient, responsive and well-regulated financial environment that address the needs of our stakeholders."
