The IIF is the leading voice for the financial services industry on global regulatory issues. We engage continuously and constructively with global standard setters and policymakers through formal submissions and reports, as well as through regular dialogue and high-level symposia.

We help shape the global policy and regulatory agenda by providing industry input and feedback. 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 working groups and committees with industry peers and interact with public sector representatives, facilitated by the IIF.

Please see attached for a brief summary of the key items on the BCBS's Agenda for 2015, and their approximate timing throughout the year. Through our various working groups, we are either currently working on these, or anticipate mobilizing new efforts in the near term.

In part, the attached reflects the high level work plan for the next two years that the BCBS announced in January, collated together with what we have learned from other recent statements and presentations, including some indicative timings within the year. While this summary is very BCBS-specific, it makes passing reference to other FSB and IOSCO initiatives, where these have some interplay.
