Policy portal All policy portal

This policy portal provides a public interest perspective on the issues at stake and ongoing legislative debates in the field of financial regulation.

Policy brief

Finance Watch blueprint on sustainable finance

World leaders have agreed some ambitious societal objectives, such as the Paris Agreement and the broader Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the need to re-direct financial flows to support these is obvious to all.
