Service to our clients is paramount. Our Client Service Charter sets out the service standards that you can expect from us and how we will deliver these services to you. It outlines our service commitments to you, as well as what the Authority expects from you to enable us deliver a quality service.
Our purpose is to maintain proper standards of conduct and professionalism in the securities industry through registration, licensing and regulation of securities exchanges, investment advisers, securities brokers or dealers and their agents. We also approve all public offers in line with the CMA Act and ensure that investors are protected in the course of trading in securities within our capital market.
CMA recognizes that enhancing public education and awareness about securities is an important part of its mandate, and is one of the most effective regulatory tools. We will therefore continue to develop public education programs whose ultimate goal is to have all Ugandans benefit from participation in the capital market. Through developing good laws, we facilitate the removal of impediments to, and create incentives for long-term investment in productive enterprises.
