- seeking appropriate, measured and globally consistent regulatory outcomes;
- seeking quality policy developments;
- enhancing and maintaining AFME's status as a trusted interlocutor;
- fostering a regulatory dialogue with the industry; and
- contributing industry expertise to informed debates about regulation.
The division is advised by the Prudential Regulation Board, which sets its broad policy focus and objectives, and the Prudential Regulation Committee, which scrutinises proposed regulations and advises on technical matters. These bodies are supported by a wide range of technical working groups.
