Ad Invitation


Mongolia has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability Project (SFFSP). The Objective of the SFFS Project is to contribute to the Government of Mongolia’s efforts to strengthen fiscal and financial stability and improve the quality of expenditure. The project is designed into five components: (I) Strengthening Macroeconomic and Fiscal Management; (II) Improving the Efficiency of Public Financial Management; (III) Enhancing Financial Sector Stability; (IV) Strengthening the Social Protection System; (V) Project Management and Monitoring. The objectives are to: Strengthening fiscal responsibility and implementing relevant policy measures, improving fiscal discipline, strengthening the resiliency of the banking system, improving public expenditure quality in social protection, providing support for Project implementation, coordination, monitoring and evaluation, including, inter alia, audit arrangements, reporting requirements, procurement and financial management activities respectively. For more details, please refer to the Project Appraisal Document Report No. PAD2269. 

The Ministry of Finance (MoF), the Financial Regulatory Commission (FRC) and the Bank of Mongolia (BoM) had jointly developed “Financial sector development plan 2025” which was approved by the Government resolution #299, 2017. The main purpose of the development plan is to improve Mongolian financial sector framework, structure and infrastructure in the midterm, define the strategic goals and implement it to build more balanced and diversified financial sector instead of bank dominant financial sector, and put into action the prudential method to regulate the sector and prevent the systemic risk. 

The Mongolian capital market is still developing which translates into securities market legislation and enforcement that can be further strengthened. There is already the legal framework in place which ensures issuance and circulation of basic products (mostly shares and government securities) and functioning of basic infrastructure. Issuance of local corporate debt securities is rare and needs to be made more efficiently. There is nascent demand for derivatives in Mongolia. While appropriate legal framework alone is not enough to create a developed and efficient market, it is a prerequisite and certain legal reforms may lift existing barriers for market participants. In 1994, the Securities Market Law of Mongolia (the “Securities Market Law”) was enacted. On May 24, 2013, Parliament enacted the Revised Securities Markets Law with effect from January 1, 2014. The purpose of the Revised Securities Market Law was to introduce effective and clear guidance with respect to initial public offerings of shares and to define the distinction between primary and secondary securities market activities while providing measures preventing insider dealing and market abuses. In addition, the Revised Securities Market Law imposes higher standards and registration requirements for securities markets participants as well as advisory service providers, including law firms and audit firms. The Revised Securities Market Law defines securities broadly to include derivatives, depositary receipts and warrants.

Therefore, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) is seeking to hire a professional legal expert (National Individual Consultant) for reviewing and finalizing the amendments for the “Securities market law” and improve the legal framework of this law in line with the current market needs and international best practices.
