Growth and Emerging Markets Committee

The Growth and Emerging Markets Committee is the largest Committee within IOSCO, representing over 75% of the IOSCO's ordinary membership. Mr Ranjit Ajit Singh, Chairman, Securities Commission, Malaysia, and Vice Chair of the IOSCO Board, is the Chair of the GEM. The Committee seeks to promote the development and greater efficiency of emerging securities and futures markets by establishing principles and minimum standards, providing training programs and technical assistance for members and facilitating the exchange of information and transfer of technology and expertise.

The GEM comprises 87 members and 20 non-voting associate members who include the world's fastest growing economies and 10 of the G-20 members. Emerging economies are expected to represent a growing portion of IOSCO membership as new members continue to join.

IOSCO is the only international standard setter that has a Committee solely responsible for emerging market issues. This inclusiveness increases IOSCO's effectiveness and positions it to play a bigger part in shaping the global regulatory framework: IOSCO has been allocated an extra seat at the Financial Stability Board Plenary for the Chairman of the GEM. The GEM also has a seat on the IFRS Foundation Monitoring Board.
