The task for financial regulatory authorities is formidable. Regulation is becoming vastly more complex and must address new and fast-paced technological developments; efforts to implement it within the existing legal framework face considerable obstacles. This is compounded by the novel challenge of ensuring a smooth transition for the legal framework of the wholesale financial markets during the U.K.’s secession from the European Union.

The FMLC—whose work in addressing legal uncertainty is more important than ever—will struggle to keep pace without adequate resources. The FMLC's patrons generously fund the Charity's activities, allowing it to maintain its independence and continue to produce high-quality research and reporting.  Please contact us for more details on becoming a patron of the FMLC.
