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
