Thank you for visiting the Internet site of the Division
of Finance and Corporate Securities and permitting us to share information
with you and others who have an interest in our division. We have implemented
some interactive capabilities to make it easier to conduct business with our
division over the Internet. We are committed to expanding these features.
The 15 programs administered through this Division touch
nearly all Oregonians and many residents of other states in one way or another.
It is our hope that this site will help us to become more effective in responding
to the needs of the public, be they individuals or the organizations we regulate.
On our Web site, you will find our mission: To encourage
a wide range of financial services, products, and information for Oregonians,
delivered in a safe, sound, equitable, and fraud-free manner. This ties directly
to the broader mission of the Department of Consumer and Business Services,
namely, to protect consumers and workers. We expect providers to make financial
products and services available in a straightforward manner, disclosing the
pertinent characteristics so consumers may make informed choices. We encourage
citizens to contact us when they have concerns about the businesses we regulate,
just as we want those businesses we regulate to express their concerns. To
facilitate this we have several sites that provide answers to frequently asked
questions and on-line complaint forms for filing a complaint with any of our
The Division meets with industry groups on a regular basis
to have an exchange of views about services and any policy initiatives that
may affect them. This cooperation has helped us achieve our mission. If you
have matters that you believe should be discussed at those meetings, please
let us know. We welcome and appreciate your comments that will help us improve
our service to you.
