10 Main activities The main objectives of Eurofi are to help industry and public decision-makers reach a common understanding of possible evolutions required in the regulation and supervision of financial services and to open the way to legislative or industry-driven solutions that may enhance the safety and effectiveness of the EU financial sector. Eurofi acts in a general interest perspective, facilitating exchanges of views between diverse financial industry players and the public authorities. These exchanges are prepared by objective fact finding and issue analyses. Eurofi has two main types of activities conducted by Didier Cahen, Secretary General of Eurofi, Jean-Marie Andrès and Marc Truchet, Senior Fellows: Events and meetings:  Eurofi organizes annually two major international events (the High Level Seminar in March / April and the Financial Forum in September) gathering together industry leaders and EU and non-EU public decision makers for discussions on the major on-going regulatory projects in the financial area, as well as informal networking.  These events have been organised in recent years in association with the EU or G20 Presidencies in parallel with informal ECOFIN councils or G20 Finance Ministers meetings. They are organised with the support of Christian Hawkins and his team.  Additional workshops involving the members of Eurofi are set up to exchange views on regulatory issues. Bilateral meetings are also regularly organised with representatives of the public authorities and other stakeholders (e.g. end-users, experts) to fine-tune assessments and proposals. Research and documentation:  Assessments and proposals taking into account economic, risk and end-user impacts are prepared with the support of cross-sectoral working groups comprising members of Eurofi.  Topics addressed include prospective and on-going regulatory proposals at the EU and global levels, as well as industry trends. Main topics currently addressed  Challenges posed by the deleveraging process and the present monetary context  Current evolutions of the prudential and regulatory framework of banks and insurance companies: proposals for an EU banking union, fine-tuning of banking and insurance prudential frameworks (liquidity provisions, RWA evaluations, Solvency II), structural reforms of the banking sector, recovery and resolution framework of banks and non-banks, regulation of shadow banking  Capital markets and investment products regulations: regulation of securities, derivatives and commodities markets and infrastructures (MiFID review, CSD regulation, EMIR, recovery and resolution), collateral rules and Securities Law Legislation (SLL), asset management regulations (AIFMD, UCITS, MMFs…), investor protection regulation (PRIPs, MiFID, IMD…) and fund depositary rules (UCITS V)  Developing a long term investment perspective and ensuring an appropriate financing of the EU economy: proposals for enhancing the financing of infrastructure projects and for further diversifying the financing of EU corporates and midcaps  The global consistency of financial regulations and the implementation of G20 commitments  Optimizing the EU financial services internal market: addressing the increasing fragmentation of EU financial activities prompted by the crisis, conditions for enabling a sustainable SEPA business case, review of the IORP directive, regulation of CRAs…  A not-for-profit organization created in 2000 chaired by Jacques de Larosière  A platform for exchanges between the financial services industry and the public authorities addressing issues related to the evolution of financial regulation and supervision  A not-for-profit organization created in 2000 chaired by Jacques de Larosière  A platform for exchanges between the financial services industry and the public authorities addressing issues related to the evolution of financial regulation and supervision ABOUT EUROFI The European Think Tank dedicated to financial services EUROFI MEMBERS 10
