The IOSCO Board re-elected Ashley Alder, CEO of SFC Hong Kong, as its Chair and Jean-Paul Servais, Chairman of FSMA Belgium, as a Vice Chair. It also elected Heath P. Tarbert, Chairman of the U.S. CFTC, as a new Vice Chair. Earlier this year, the GEM Committee, Regional Committees, and the Affiliate Members Consultative Committee also elected their leadership for the term 2020-2022.
A notification published by the U.S. CFTC points out that Chairman Tarbert is the first CFTC Chairman to be elected to join the leadership of the IOSCO Board since the international standard-setting body was established in 1983. Mr. Tarbet said: “At the CFTC, we strive each day to be the global standard for sound derivatives regulation. I am honored to serve as Vice Chair on IOSCO’s Board, and I look forward to working with my counterparts to foster international cooperation and further IOSCO’s important work of promoting financial stability, market integrity, and investor protection.”
