​​​​Only entities authorized by Banco de Cabo Verde can carry out financial activities in Cabo Verde. As part of the authorization process, Banco de Cabo Verde checks compliance with a number of requirements that ensure solvency and the ability of the entity and its main governing body members to pursue the financial activity.

Carrying out financial activities without the proper authorization, on one's own account or on behalf of others, is punishable by imprisonment, according to the Law on Financial Activities and Institutions (LAIF).

Going to unqualified entities may result in serious harm to customers, since these entities are not subject to information duties and prudential limits that safeguard consumer interests and financial system stability.

Before entering into a contractual relationship, customers must verify that the entity concerned is qualified to carry out the type of financial transaction involved. To do so, simply consult the list of authorized entities.​
