Article List:


(NOTE: Actions covered by specific bodies (such as G20/FSB) and legislators (European Council + ECOFIN; ECON) are covered in the specialist categories. Moreover, we separate financial stability policy analysis  from the legislative process. So this Timeline covers the remaining general events focusing on international financial, economic and political news that shape the creation of a single financial market. The technical details of proposals are covered in the relevant category.)

Wide ranging review of regulation in all financial sectors is underway and the details will develop over many years. But there will be a much wider range of inputs than in the past – both geographically (G20), by industry and by social function (user (such as investors/issuers), supplier, supervisor, regulator etc). European participants should be aware of the new, broader context. That requires knowledge to flow in both directions: G20 reactions to EU acts, as well as G20 actions that may shape the European debate.
