The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) have signed a joint Digital Assets Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The MoU creates a framework enabling the collaboration between the BMA and the FSRA to support the establishment of digital assets entities across their jurisdictions and ensure their effective supervision.

This framework encompasses regulatory and supervisory cooperation, investigative assistance and capacity enhancement initiatives.
