Who We Are
The Institute of International Finance is the global association of the financial industry, with close to 500 members from 70 countries. Its mission is to support the financial industry in the prudent management of risks; to develop sound industry practices; and to advocate for regulatory, financial and economic policies that are in the broad interests of its members and foster global financial stability and sustainable economic growth. IIF members include commercial and investment banks, asset managers, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, central banks and development banks.
What We Do
The IIF is the leading voice for the financial services industry on global regulatory issues. We engage constructively with global standard setters and policymakers through formal submissions and reports, as well as through regular dialogue and high-level symposia.
We focus on issues such as international capital and liquidity standards for banks and insurers, resolution and recovery policy issues, derivatives market rules, international conduct standards, shadow banking, supervision and risk management, and accounting standards, among many others.
Members participate in more than 30 working groups and committees with industry peers and interact with public sector representatives, facilitated by the IIF.
The IIF offers an independent source of global economic and financial research. We provide a comprehensive assessment of the global outlook with a focus on key emerging economies, timely analysis of capital flows to emerging markets and developments in international financial markets.
We focus on risks and policy challenges, drawing on first-hand insights from our interactions with policymakers and member firms and our close involvement with the global regulatory debate.
Members can tap the IIF’s team of highly experienced, international economists and financial analysts for custom briefings on a range of macro, regional, and country issues.
IIF events are considered the foremost gatherings of the international financial industry.
Our Membership Meetings take place in every region of the world and provide members the opportunity to meet with clients, peers and public officials from around the globe.
