Chairman’s Statement 2014

February 2014

The European Parliamentary Financial Services Forum (EPFSF) performs a similar role in Brussels as the Associate Parliamentary Group on Wholesale Financial Markets and Services (APG WFM&S) in Westminster, although it addresses issues from the perspective of the EU at large rather than in the context of one of its member states. However, as it often covers similar topics to the APG WFM&S, we post its most recent briefing notes on our website, so that they can be accessed by Parliamentary members of the Group as well as members of its Industry Advisory Group.

By way of background, the EPFSF is chaired by Guido Ravoet, Chief Executive of the European Banking Federation, with Anthony Belchambers, Chief Executive of the Futures and Options Association, as the Vice-Chairman. A significant percentage of the briefings are drafted by the Industry Advisory Group members of the APG WFM&S.
