The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)
As the global standard-setter for the securities sector, IOSCO works with the G20 and the Financial Services Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda. The Regulatory Authority is an Associate Member of IOSCO. As an active member, the Regulatory Authority participates in IOSCO’s work through participation in the Africa/Middle-East Regional Committee, Growth and Emerging Markets Committee and Committee 5 (C 5) on Investment Management. Additionally, the Regulatory Authority chairs the C5’s sub-committee on leverage (C5 Leverage Sub-Working Group), a task force required to establish technical standards following the Financial Stability Board recommendations to mitigate excessive leverage on funds.
The Regulatory Authority is a signatory to the IOSCO Multilateral Memorandum of Understanding Concerning Consultation and Co-operation and the Exchange of Information (MMoU). The IOSCO MMoU is an international benchmark for cross-border co-operation and provides regulators with important tools to combat cross-border fraud and misconduct that can undermine investor confidence and lead to weakened global markets.
