Warning! LobbyFacts is temporarily only showing data up to 19 September 2021. This is because from 20 September, the EU lobby register changed format and the register's secretariat is no longer providing complete and reliable daily data updates which LobbyFacts uses to keep up to date. This temporary problem has not affected LobbyFacts' archive facility, but for today's lobby data, please check the original EU lobby register. We hope the secretariat will remedy this soon, enabling us to launch a new improved and faster version of LobbyFacts.

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 regulatory regimes that increase transparency, protect investors, and facilitate responsible long-term 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 Market Infrastructure issues: EMIR, CCP Recovery and Resolution, CSDR Corporate Governance Capital Markets Union Sustainable Finance Taxation
