L'ESMA, l'Autorité européenne des Marchés Financiers, a publié le discours de son Président, Steven Maijoor, au Forum des investisseurs.

Introduction :

I am very pleased to have the opportunity to speak at your conference today. I would like to compliment the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association on organising this event and offering a programme with distinguished speakers and panellists covering such a broad range of key private equity and venture capital issues.

During the various speeches and interventions I have made so far in my role as ESMA Chair, I have consistently stressed two key objectives that I see for ESMA as an organisation. I would like to say a few words about these today before moving on to discuss topics of more specific relevance to this audience.

The first key objective is the development of a single rule book for the regulation of financial markets in the European Union. This is a significant challenge and one which we do not take lightly, but I feel that we can already point to some substantial progress over our first 14 months or so of existence. To take just a few examples, we have already issued draft technical standards on credit rating agencies, developed draft guidelines on ETFs and other UCITS issues and delivered technical advice to the European Commission onboth the Prospectus Directive and the AIFMD (more of which later). We have done this while managing the transition from ESMA’s predecessor, CESR, to the new entity and dealing with the various procedural and organisational changes that has implied.
