Phase I of the IOSCO/PIFS-Harvard Law School Global Certificate Program for Regulators of Securities Markets, Madrid, Spain, 18-29 June 2018 – Registration Open
IOSCO and the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School (PIFS-HLS) jointly developed a two-phase program aimed at offering IOSCO members an executive education program that is exclusively tailored for regulators of securities markets. Attendees have up to three years to complete both phases of the Global Certificate Program. Successful attendees will be awarded a joint certificate of participation issued by IOSCO and PIFS-Harvard Law School. Also, IOSCO members may attend any part of the program on a non-certificate basis. Following the inauguration of the program in 2016, it is envisaged that going forward both phases will be conducted once every year.
Phase I consists of three components: online learning materials; an in-person module on regulation; and an in-person module on compliance. The in-person modules will be conducted at IOSCO Headquarters in Madrid (Spain) from 18-29 June 2018, and will cover the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance. These two week-long sessions will be delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators.
Phase II consists of a one week-long in-person module that will be conducted on campus at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge (Massachusetts, US) from 2-7 December 2018. This one week-long session will examine current and future regulatory challenges and emerging issues and will be delivered by leading academics, securities regulators and public policy makers.
While any IOSCO member employee may attend the program, it is specifically designed for regulatory staff with strong leadership potential and approximately five years of regulatory experience.
Online registration is now open. To secure your seat, kindly register at your earliest convenience, but please do so by no later than May 25th.

IOSCO Asia Pacific Hub – World Bank Group – Securities Commission Malaysia Conference Harnessing Islamic Finance for a Green Future, Kuala Lumpur, 14-15 May 2018
The IOSCO Asia Pacific Hub together with the World Bank Group and the Securities Commission Malaysia will be organising a Conference on Harnessing Islamic Finance for a Green Future from 14-15 May 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In recent years, climate change has risen to the top of the development agenda, with 195 countries signing the Paris Agreement to fight climate change. Given the scale of the financial resources required to support climate mitigation and adaptation initiatives, coupled with the strain on government budgets, the mobilisation of financing through innovative instruments is imperative. Hence, the use of Islamic finance to support Green investments has been receiving increased attention, with the recent issuances of the first set of Green Sukuk to finance climate friendly projects.
The Conference will explore the use of Islamic finance to support climate mitigation efforts, including the use of Islamic finance instruments to finance climate friendly projects. It will explore policy, regulatory and institutional elements required for the sustainable use of Islamic finance to address climate change. There will be particular focus on the recent use of Green Sukuk to finance projects in the region and the potential replication of these instruments in other markets.
For registration and further information on the Conference, please refer to the IOSCO Asia Pacific Hub’s website at www.iosco.org.my. If you have any queries, please contact Reuben Varughese Phillip, Advisor, IOSCO Asia Pacific Hub at firstname.lastname@example.org.
