    Goals / Remit

    BlackRock is one of the world’s leading providers of investment, advisory and risk management solutions. We are a fiduciary to our clients - which means putting our clients’ interests first. It is from this perspective that BlackRock supports the creation of regulatory regimes that increase transparency, protect investors, and facilitate responsible long-term growth of capital markets, while preserving consumer choice and assessing benefits versus implementation costs.

    Specifically in EU affairs, our organisational goals are to:

    - Positively contribute to legislation and regulations affecting Europe's end-investors

    - Distinguish our firm as a trusted resource for policymakers

    - Demonstrate thought leadership that adds to the European policy debate

    Main EU files targeted

    We follow legislative issues which we feel will have an impact on end-investors – a (non-exhaustive) sampling of some of the EU issues we have been focused on in recent years can be found below:
    Funds issues: AIFMD, UCITS, ELTIFs, MMFR
    Securities issues: MiFID, MAD, Benchmarks
    Market Infrastructure issues: EMIR, CCP Recovery and Resolution, CSDR
    Corporate Governance and Corporate Reporting
    Capital Markets Union
    Sustainable Finance
