We work on behalf of our members to advocate for stable, competitive, sustainable capital markets.
Who We Are
The Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) is the voice of all Europe’s wholesale financial markets, providing expertise across a broad range of regulatory and capital markets issues.
We represent the leading global and European banks and other significant capital market players.
We advocate for deep and integrated European capital markets which serve the needs of companies and investors, supporting economic growth and benefiting society.
We aim to act as a bridge between market participants and policy makers across Europe, drawing on our strong and long-standing relationships, our technical knowledge and fact-based work.
AFME's Board of Directors represent leading European and global banks.
How we work
AFME acts as a bridge between the wholesale financial markets, politicians, regulators and the public.
AFME was formed in November 2009 through the merger of the London Investment Banking Association (LIBA) and the European arm of the Securities Industries and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA).
