How investors are protected on Mintos
We’re regulated by Latvijas Banka, the central bank of Latvia, the competent authority for investment services supervision in Latvia.
Financial regulation benefits investors
In a regulated environment such as Mintos, investors benefit from additional layers of protection and transparency.
The financial system is an integral part of our daily lives. For example, we need banks to hold our money or make payments. Likewise, we need investment firms to invest our money to gain future returns. Poorly regulated financial institutions have the potential to harm consumers and undermine the stability of the financial system. Regulation establishes rules to stop things from going wrong, and in the case that they do, consumers and the financial system are protected by these rules.
Applicable regulation includes
Investment firms in the EU must comply with several laws and regulations aimed at protecting investors and the stability of the financial system, such as MiFID. A combination of sound internal control mechanisms, internal and external audits, and regulatory oversight ensures that Mintos strictly follows all applicable requirements.
