Amana Capital is regulated and licensed by The Central Bank of Lebanon (Banque Du Liban/BDL). The BDL grants licenses for the establishment of banks, financial institutions, brokerage firms, money dealers, foreign banks, leasing companies and mutual funds in Lebanon. The Banking Control Commission (BCC) monitors and supervises these institutions. The BDL issues circulars and resolutions that govern the relationships of banks and other financial institutions with their customers and regulators.
Amana Capital also works in conjunction with the Special Investigation Commission – Fighting Money Laundering (SIC). The SIC, Lebanon's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), receives, analyzes, and investigates suspicious transaction reports (STRs) and ensures compliance of banks, financial institutions and other reporting entities with the AML/CFT regulations.
The BDL, BCC and SIC have done an internationally well-recognized job controlling the financial services companies in Lebanon, as proven by the outstanding record of Lebanese financial institutions, especially during times of crisis; which has led to increased trust in the financial sector in Lebanon and in the capacity of the regulators in Lebanon to effectively monitor financial institutions and preserve clients' interests.
