The Division of Banking and Securities regulates state depository and non-depository financial institutions, administers and enforces Alaska’s financial services laws, and provides information to consumers, investors, entrepreneurs and the financial services industry. The division includes three sections that administer 12 statutory programs. In addition to licensing, examination and enforcement duties, division staff answer inquiries, investigate and resolve complaints, and contribute to education and outreach activities.
The Banking Section charters and examines state-chartered banks, bank holding companies, credit unions, trust companies, small loan companies, business and industrial development corporations (BIDCOs), payday lenders and premium finance companies.
The Consumer Finance Section registers, licenses, examines and investigates complaints regarding non-depository financial institutions, including mortgage brokers, lenders and originators, as well as money service businesses that are money transmitters (wiring of funds); issuers of traveler’s checks, money orders, or stored value cards; sellers or redeemers of traveler’s checks, money orders or stored value cards; and currency dealers or exchangers.
Effective July 1, 2014, filings are no longer required for certain exempt securities transactions under 45.55.900(b)(5)(A), 45.55.900(b)(5)(B) and 45.55.900(b)(7).

Please contact the Division if you have any questions.
The Securities and Enforcement Section examines and registers securities, securities dealers and salespersons, investment advisers and their representatives; and is the repository for Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) corporation proxy information. Together, the three sections enforce the financial services laws to protect consumers, preserve the integrity of the financial systems, enhance legitimate capital formation and deter financial fraud.
