Introducing the New ICI Global

By Michael Pedroni

ICI Global is a community of leading asset management firms with a worldwide presence. We serve investors across Europe and multiple other jurisdictions and we are establishing a deep commitment to our work in Brussels.

To reflect our European focus, ICI Global is significantly expanding our team in Brussels. With our European policy experts, attorneys, and researchers, we can provide a unique, cutting-edge, and global perspective. ICI Global is introducing a new model to represent our industry, recognizing that policy developments in Europe, Asia and the United States are deeply intertwined—and so are the operations of our members. We are committed to helping shape strong policies, regulations, and thought leadership for the benefit of long-term investors.

The new ICI Global is driven by three core mandates:

  1. Representing the investment fund industry’s voice on the global stage. Our research and analysis help to shape key policies and regulations in the Europe, the United States, Asia and international fora like the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO);
  2. Focusing intensively on Brussels, where the European Union leads in crafting rules for global asset managers; and
  3. Providing thought leadership from the industry through research and data, insights on regulatory challenges, and peer-to-peer discussion platforms.
