We have a broad mandate. We are a regulator; a policy advisory body; a consumer protection agency; a

This work is directed to one principal aim: to realise ASIC’s vision for a fair, strong and efficient financial

We do this by being a strategic as well as forceful regulator, and by:
proactively identifying harms to consumers (including vulnerable consumers such as Indigenous
Australians), investors and markets prioritising and addressing the most significant harms
accelerating enforcement outcome
implementing new supervisory approaches
promoting adoption of regulatory technology (regtech) by industry.
The aim of our 18-month program is to develop both your technical and professional skills though a
balance of on-the-job training, structured development and placements within four different teams.
