Hanfa is a regulator that regulates financial markets, financial services, and the financial entities that provide these services. Hanfa is responsible for supervising the commercial activities carried out by stock exchanges and regulated public markets, the investment services provided by authorised companies, the investment businesses carried out, investment companies and securities issuers, brokers and investment advisers, fixed agents, central clearing and depository Trust companies, insurance and reinsurance companies, etc.
The main objective of Hanfa is to maintain the stability of the financial system and supervise the operation of regulated institutions.

It should be noted, however, that Hanfa does not have an authority to arbitrate assets and liabilities or to help enforce consumer rights in disputes over individual contractual relationships. Hanfa only authorizes inspections for violations of regulations.
Finally, Hanfa is a regulator, not a consultant, and therefore Hanfa is not authorized to provide legal advice to users of financial services.
