Shaping industry policy

As the UK investment industry’s champion, we work closely with the UK government, regulators, the European Commission, and other international bodies, to help shape the environment our members operate in. We also give evidence regularly at parliamentary enquiries, and we brief UK and EU politicians and peers on industry-related policy.

We produce a range of publications that lay out our thinking on the key issues facing the industry. Some set out our views and position in response to consultations. Others provide guidelines for members on issues such as corporate governance, share capital management, and other matters related to capital markets.

Good policy is based on strong evidence, which is why our research and expertise are as broad as they are deep. Publications range from position papers on topical issues to independent research by external consultants or think tanks, joint research ventures with affiliate members, and IA policy reports. We also produce accessible policy guides and 2-page quick briefs for non-technical audiences.
