Stockholm at the centre of the world’s financial markets in 2001 In the summer of 2001 the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority and OM Gruppen will arrange the 26th annual meeting of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) in Stockholm. Comprehensive changes are currently taking place within the financial sector. As a result of technical developments and increased globalisation, conditions for the world’s supervisory authorities have also changed, placing increased demands on international cooperation. IOSCO is a coordinating body for supervisory authorities throughout the world. Regulatory and market issues are discussed with an emphasis on forming objectives and principles for regulatory and technical questions as well as on improving international cooperation. The annual meetings usually include some 1,000 individuals who come from supervisory authorities, exchanges and markets. This year’s meeting was held in Nairobi and the next two years’ meetings will be hosted by Lisbon and Sydney. The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority acts as the regulatory body for the Swedish financial markets, working within three main areas: credit, securities and insurance markets. The Authority cooperates extensively with international organisations. OM Gruppen is the parent company in the OM group. OM is dedicated to producing outstanding products and services in the field of transaction technology. OM also operates exchanges in Stockholm and London and develops technology, which increases the efficiency of financial and commodities markets throughout the world.
