INTRODUCTION

The "shadow banking system" is a global phenomenon consisting of organizations that trade in, or provide financial services; and are not subject to government regulatory scrutiny and oversight. The term "shadow banking system" is considered a misnomer, since the term "shadow banking system" describes financial activities that have existed for thousands of years and pre-date modern "federally regulated" banking activities, so a more appropriate term - deemed by the founder of OSBSO.org - would be: "non-regulated banking & financial services system".

The use of financial services from participants in the shadow banking system is rising due to the increasing powers of internet technology and increasing levels of international economic integration.

THE PROBLEM

Shadow bankers, because they are not regulated, may - wittingly or unwittingly - have a bias towards "taking advantage of unwary or trusting corporate or retail consumers and investors." Further, because shadow banking financial services providers are not regulated by governments, [or, the government regulatory body does not provide services - or have inadequate provisions to effectively regulate shadow banking activities], they are unable to help eligible consumers and investors who are looking to lodge a complaint or seek redress (resolution or compensation) from a shadow banker. This is how OSBSO.org, an international private-sector ombudsman, is able to help you.

If you have knowingly or unknowingly been provided services by a shadow banking financial services provider or providers and you think any of these have been unfair to you, you are welcome to contact us.
