International organisations

The CSSF contributes to the work of several international groups the purpose of which is financial consumer protection and financial education.



Recognised as the global standard setter for the securities sector, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) is an international body made up of the world's securities regulators. IOSCO develops, implements and promotes adherence to internationally recognised standards for securities regulation. It works intensively with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda. The IOSCO Investor Education Gateway provides information on the on-line investor education activities of some IOSCO members, as well as IOSCO publications and presentations regarding investor education.


The awareness of the importance of financial education is gaining momentum among policy makers in economies all over the world. The OECD and its International Network on Financial Education (INFE) provide a policy forum for governments to exchange views and experiences on this issue.


The International Financial Consumer Protection Organisation (FinCoNet) is an international organisation of supervisory authorities which have responsibility for financial consumer protection. FinCoNet promotes sound market conduct and strong consumer protection through efficient and effective financial market conduct supervision.
