MADRID – A new paper outlining 30 principles of securities regulation has been released by the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (Iosco). Principles are based on investor protection, market fairness and transparency, and reducing systemic risk.
The paper, “Objectives and Principles of Securities Regulation”, updates Iosco’s previous set of objectives and principles, which dated back to 1998. The principles are subdivided into categories for the regulator, self-regulation, enforcement, co-operation, issuers, collective investment schemes, market intermediaries and the secondary market.
