The Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (AZDFI), formerly known as the State Banking Department, was originally codified in 1922 and enacted into law in 1973. AZDFI is statutorily charged with the licensing, supervision and regulation of state-chartered financial institutions and enterprises ensuring the safety and soundness of the financial services industry in Arizona. The Department also investigates complaints that are filed by consumers against licensed entities and directs appropriate remedial action if the violations are substantiated.
Arizona Management System
Governor Doug Ducey’s vision is for Arizona to be the number one state to live, work, play, recreate, retire, visit, do business, and get an education. To achieve this vision, Arizona is deploying a professional, results-driven management system to transform the way our State government thinks and does business as one enterprise. State agencies are doing more good for Arizona by tracking and improving their performance each and every day.
