In this article, we consider the partially observed optimal control problem for forward-backward stochastic systems with Markovian regime switching. A stochastic maximum principle for optimal control is developed using a variational method and filtering technique. Our theoretical results are applied to the motivating example of the risk minimization for portfolio selection.
