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.
