Goals / Remit

BlackRock’s mission is to create a better financial future for our clients. We operate our business with a fiduciary mindset - which means putting our clients’ interests first. It is from this perspective that BlackRock supports the creation of a regulatory regime that increases transparency, protects investors, and facilitates responsible growth of capital markets, while preserving consumer choice and assessing benefits versus implementation costs

Specifically in EU affairs, our organisational goals are to:

- Positively contribute to legislation and regulations affecting Europe's end-investors

- Distinguish our firm as a trusted resource that policymakers can turn to as an informed market participant

- Demonstrate thought leadership that adds to the European policy debate


We follow legislative issues which we feel will have an impact on end-investors – a (non-exhaustive) sampling of some of the EU issues we have been focused on in recent years can be found below: Funds issues: AIFMD, UCITS, ELTIFs, MMFR Securities issues: MiFID, MAD, Benchmarks Prudential issues: IFR, CRD IV, Solvency II Market Infrastructure issues: EMIR, CCP Recovery and Resolution, CSDR Corporate Governance Capital Markets Union Sustainable Finance Taxation
