The objective of the Committee is to promote efficient, open, stable and sound financial systems, based on high levels of transparency, confidence, and integrity, so as to contribute to sustainable and inclusive growth.

In supporting this objective, Committee seeks to promote the contribution of financial institutions, including institutional investors, and capital markets to savings and investment, to finance economic growth. It also contributes to the enhancement of policy approaches in the financial sector; such as to promote efficient and transparent public debt markets. As well, it promotes effective financial education and consumer protection to enhance financial inclusion. In order to achieve these objectives, the Committee engages in efforts to:

  • develop proactive surveillance of financial developments and in-depth analysis of the implications of evolving financial structures on economic growth and market stability;

  • engage in policy dialogue, including with Committee delegates through semi-annual Committee meetings, and also between public and private sector participants through financial roundtables in Paris and Tokyo, and global fora on fintech and sustainable finance;

  • promote good practices through legal policy instruments, including the Committee’s Framework for Effective and Efficient Financial Regulation.

Areas of Work

Financial Markets-Intermediation-iconFinancial Markets & Intermediation

‌The Committee engages in global financial surveillance and analysis of financial markets and intermediation to assess which frameworks and policies are effectively contributing to economic growth. Through its Secretariat and members, it assesses global banking, market-based finance, corporate debt and equity markets, market liquidity, implicit guarantees, and financial safety nets. It explores market contribution to investment and productivity, and access of SMEs to adequate equity and debt financing.



Fintech-Digitalisation-iconFinTech & Digitalisation of Finance

‌The Committee asseses developments in financial technologies that impact markets and the financial sector, and how the adoption of innovative technologies, such as through the digitalisation of finance, can contribute to economic growth. To this end, it has established an Experts Group on Finance and Digitalisation. It also assesses whether policy tools or guidance may be needed to ensure innovations can benefit society while minimising risks that could undermine growth or financial inclusion.

SustFinance-iconSustainable Finance

‌Sustainable finance is essential to the long-term value that underpins inclusive growth. Developments in sustainable finance need to achieve high levels of transparency, confidence and integrity to ensure that the system is stable and sound. Our work assesses various forms of sustainable finance, such as ESG investing and integration, and engages with private sector participants to foster resilient markets.
