How we work

AFME acts as a bridge between the wholesale financial markets, politicians, regulators and the public.

Our core activities consist of:

  • Advocacy - close dialogue with regulators to ensure that the industry's perspective is understood and carries weight
  • Policy development - applying our market expertise to assist formulation of EU and national legislation
  • Education - helping policymakers to understand the markets
  • Communication - developing content, convening debates
  • Co-ordination - bringing market participants and industry bodies to work together on the key issues for the sector

Our structure

AFME divisions work with members, regulators, and policymakers to help develop a more sustainable and efficient financial industry.

Each division has a Board and/or Committee made up of members who guide its activities and take part in forums, working groups, and informal discussions to respond to regulatory reform proposals and develop best practices.
