The IOSCO is a leading international policy forum and a global standard setter for securities regulators. The organization’s membership regulates more than 95pc of the world’s securities markets in some 130 jurisdictions, and it continues to expand.
Ashley Alder, chair of the IOSCO board and the chief executive officer of the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission welcomes this 6th edition of the IOSCO World Investor Week.
“During the last two years, we have seen a growing number of retail investors participating in securities markets, in the context of the global pandemic. Those investors are facing new challenges, such as inflationary pressures and the uncertainties deriving from geopolitical tensions,” he said.
“Financial education and investor protection play a critical role in enhancing investor resilience and confidence to participate in financial markets on a properly informed basis,” he added.
