About FSS

Sources of Operating Funds

Fees collected from financial institutions and securities issuers and appropriation from the Bank of Korea comprise most of the operating budget for the FSS. The relative share of fees to be contributed by the regulated financial institutions is determined annually by the FSC based on the total amount of liabilities at the end of the previous fiscal year, subject to certain restrictions. The relative share to be collected from securities issuers is also determined by the FSC based on the total amount of securities issued. When approving the budget for a fiscal year, the FSC takes into account the current funding level, assets, and other financial factors and conditions.
