3. Overarching Strategy Lessons from the Global Financial Crisis: 1. While the crisis commenced in unregulated segments of the market and became a credit (rather than market) crisis, the key elements of risk were transmitted through markets which IOSCO members regulate or exempt from regulation. 2. While much has been written on the lessons from the crisis for industry, regulators and governments, there a few key themes which have consistently surfaced in the literature, most notably in the G 20 declarations: – The need for attention to be given to implementation of global standards; – The need for regulators to look for emerging systemic risks and take actions to mitigate them; and – The need for improved communication and cooperation globally between regulators.
3. Overarching Strategy: reformed mission The suggested reformed mission aims would be that IOSCO’s members are committed: • to cooperate together to develop, and promote adherence to and implementation of, internationally recognized standards of regulation in order to maintain orderly, efficient and fair markets, to reduce systemic risk and to protect investors; • to exchange information on their respective experiences in order to assist the development of domestic markets and their appropriate regulation; and • to promote investor confidence in the integrity of capital markets through effective cooperation in enforcement actions against misconduct in those markets.
3. Overarching Strategy: strategic goals (1) 1. Maintain the international regulatory consensus for securities markets via the setting of international standards, especially through: o Building members´ regulatory capacity through the systematic implementation of the IOSCO Objectives and Principles of Securities Regulation throughout its membership and its training and education program; o Building the enforcement and surveillance framework, through full implementation of the IOSCO MOU, possible enhancements to it, and working with uncooperative and/or under regulated jurisdictions; and o Development of international standards, through the systematic and periodic review of the IOSCO Objectives and Principles of Securities Regulation, and developing standards to deal with emerging risks and inadequate functioning of markets.
3. Overarching Strategy: strategic goals (2) 2. Identify and address systemic risks to the fair and efficient functioning of markets, especially through: o Building an independent research capacity to identify risks to the fair and efficient functioning of markets; o Developing implementable actions, within members’ responsibility, to help mitigate these risks; o Liaising with other international financial standard setters and other global bodies having a mission complementary to that of IOSCO;
3. Overarching Strategy: strategic goals (3) 3. Strengthen IOSCO´s role within the international financial community in order to advance the implementation of high-level objectives and principles of securities regulation, especially through: o Representation of IOSCO in relevant decision making forums; o Strengthening communications with stakeholders, in particular the other international financial standard setters and with bodies representing the industry; o Improving interaction within the IOSCO membership; and o Establishing the accountability of relevant international standard setters to securities regulators.
4. Block 1: Building Research Capacity Types of research 1. Risk assessment – Global Securities Regulation Risk Outlook – Exploratory Analysis 2. Fundamental economic analysis on the functioning of markets – Fundamental economic research 3. Project management support – Impact assessments – Ad hoc analyses, calculations and data analyses
4. Block 1: Building Research Capacity Options for research and economic analysis Building a network: 1. Highly experienced and pro-active researchers of IOSCO members 2. External specialists 3. A small research staff at the General Secretariat What is needed: • A small dedicated staff at the General Secretariat • Commitment of the IOSCO members’ experienced researchers • Commitment of a sponsor with a high reputation
4. Block 1: Building Research Capacity Other options that are considered by the Task Force: • Outsource model • Bigger research department at the General Secretariat
5. Block 2: Expanding MMOU Efforts Expected Status of MMOU at 1 -1 -2010: almost all jurisdictions to App. A or B Some work left: 1. 5 non-applicants: continued effort to obtain applications 2. Jurisdictions B A: plan 3. MMOU update
6. Block 3: Intensifying Implementation Assessments • 2005 Presidents´ Committee decision: give priority to Implementation of Principles • Great demand by IOSCO members and G 20 • Served by IOSCO or FSAPs (IMF, WB) or a joint IOSCO-IMF effort • How much? 40 in 5 years is reasonable. • Who first? Both Emerging market members and G 20.
7. Next Steps and Timetable SUBSTANCE • Presentation of progress at Regional C’ttee, TC and EMC meetings on overarching paper and options papers (QIV´ 09) • Input from IOSCO membership (QIV´ 09) • Proposals to Presidents´ Committee (June ´ 10) FORM • Second half of 2010
