International Regulators

All the organizations found on this page are either members of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) or the World Federation of Exchanges. Members of the IOSCO are governmental securities regulators, whereas Federation members are required to have some regulatory authority over their markets.

FINRA collaborates with international regulators to support and improve oversight of firms with global operations.  Specifically, FINRA International works to:

  1. Establish and develop relationships with key international regulators to improve oversight of its global members;
  2. Integrate cross-border collaboration into FINRA's core regulatory operations to support and improve FINRA's oversight of firms and markets.  As a part of this effort, International provides FINRA staff with international regulatory intelligence and analysis on market developments and best practices at both policy and operational levels; and
  3. Contribute FINRA's viewpoints in policy dialogues with global regulatory organizations such as the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), the Council of Securities Regulators of the Americas (COSRA), and the International Forum for Investor Education (IFIE).

FINRA has entered into information-sharing memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with key foreign regulators to allow for collaboration and coordination on selected issues.  Through these MoUs, FINRA can work with foreign counterparts to investigate possible instances of cross-border market abuse in a timely manner, exchange information on firms under common supervision of both regulators, and allow for coordination on supervision of firms and markets.
