Given that the financial sector is the backbone of any economy, this sector is highly regulated in Nepal. While the Nepal Rastra Bank regulates banks and financial institutions, the insurance businesses are regulated by the Insurance Board of Nepal. These regulators regularly publish directives and circulars that are often influenced by the political, social and economic factors. Given the vast range of laws and regulation that the financial sector is required to be compliant with, operating in this sector requires finest legal backing.
