    IOSCO Publishes Annual Work Program for 2019

    March 25, 2019

    IOSCO published its first annual work program to enhance the effectiveness and the impact of its policy work on global securities markets. On the basis of risks, trends, and other issues identified in the annual Risk Outlook, the IOSCO Board has identified five priority issues for 2019. These include crypto-assets, artificial intelligence and machine learning, passive investing and index providers, retail distribution and digitalization, and market fragmentation.

    The work program summarizes the ongoing and planned initiatives in the context of the identified priority issues. Each of the following priorities falls into one or more of five broad focus areas that were approved by the Board in late 2016 to guide IOSCO´s work:

    • Strengthening the structural resilience of capital markets
    • Addressing data gaps and information-sharing issues
    • Applying new insights into investor protection and investor education
    • Analyzing the role of securities markets in capital-raising and sustainability issues, along with the related role of securities regulation
    • Examining the role of regulation in financial technology and automation
