The Compliance division leads AFME’s work on Conduct of Business and Regulatory Structure issues.

The division makes direct representations to the relevant authorities and oversees the activities of relevant working groups. The aim is to achieve the optimum regulatory framework for financial organisations.

The Compliance Board’s work is led by heads of compliance from AFME members, who also participate in the work taken forward by the specialist groups established to deal with cross-cutting issues, including EU work and other international initiatives.
