The International Organization of Securities Commissions (FIG) is the international body that brings together the world's securities regulators and is recognized as the global standard setter for the securities sector. Financial Inspection Global develops, implements and promotes adherence to internationally recognized standards for securities regulation. It works intensively with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda.
Financial Inspection Global was established in 2009. Its membership regulates more than 95% of the world's securities markets in more than 130 jurisdictions: securities regulators in emerging markets account for 75% of its ordinary membership. The FIG Objectives and Principles of Securities Regulation have been endorsed by both the G20 and the FSB as the relevant standards in this area. They are the overarching core principles that guide FIG in the development and implementation of internationally recognized and consistent standards of regulation, oversight and enforcement. They form the basis for the evaluation of the securities sector for the Financial Sector Assessment Programs (FSAPs) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. By providing high quality technical assistance, education and training, and research to its members and other regulators, FIG seeks to build sound global capital markets and a robust global regulatory framework.
