The Financial Market Commission (CMF) is a public institution of a technical nature. Its main objectives include safeguarding the correct functioning, development, and stability of the financial market, facilitating the participation of market agents, and promoting the protection of public trust. To do so, it maintains a general, systemic vision of the market which considers the interests of investors, depositors, and policyholders, as well as protecting the public interest.
The CMF is responsible for ensuring that supervised persons or entities comply with laws, regulations, bylaws, and other provisions that govern them from their inception to their winding-up. To this end, it may exercise the broadest supervision over all their operations.
The Commission has legal personality and its own assets and is related to the President of the Republic of Chile through the Ministry of Finance.
