This issue provides a recap of our global Advocacy activities. We have published important reports, issued influential comment letters, and participated in many key meetings and events. Our aim is to give you a useful understanding of the accomplishments and impact we've had on behalf of members.
Spring 2018: This report presents our comment letters to regulators regarding capital markets and investment issues and includes our remarks on regulations and regulatory proposals that we deem important. It also provides examples of content that elucidate our position and outlook on these matters.
Capital formation and implications for investors: A combination of readily available private capital in search of higher returns in a low interest rate environment, as well as less capital-intensive new business models, has served to give new businesses more funding options than ever before. At the same time, there is no need to offer regulatory shortcuts to make public markets more attractive to new businesses seeking funding.
