IOSCO Programs

 

 

In partnership with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (“IOSCO”) and Harvard Law School, PIFS delivers the annual Global Certificate Program for Regulators of Securities Markets (“GCP”) and Global Policy Development Seminar (“GPDS”) for IOSCO members.

GCP

The GCP is an annual three-week regulatory training program for approximately one hundred and fifty mid-level securities regulators from over forty developed and developing markets. The regulators spend two weeks at IOSCO in Madrid reviewing the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance, and one week at Harvard Law School focusing on emerging issues in securities regulation. In 2020, the in-person course was replaced with a virtual training program on the role of securities regulators during COVID-19.

GPDS

The GPDS is an annual policy development seminar for senior securities regulators from across the globe, including IOSCO board members and leadership of IOSCO committees. In 2021, the GPDS focused on sustainable finance, with panel discussions on (1) global standards for issuer disclosure and (2) ESG risk management and supervisory oversight for asset managers. The 2020 GPDS addressed COVID-19’s impact on capital markets and effective policy responses, and featured a moderated panel discussion with Heath Tarbert (Chairman and Chief Executive of the U.S. CFTC), Barbara Novick (Vice Chair of BlackRock), and Jean-Claude Trichet (former President of the ECB). The 2021 GPDS is focused on sustainable finance.

PIFS and IOSCO are pleased to offer a limited number of full-tuition scholarships for the GCP and GPDS to regulators from emerging markets.
