EFSA is a forum of European Securities Associations for information sharing and fostering mutual understanding. EFSA itself is not a legal entity but a self-organising informal working-group. As such, it also helps to deliver joint messages on policy issues in European securities markets to policy makers, regulators and supervisors who we hope might benefit from such a coordinated approach. EFSA complements the existing activities of its member-associations. EFSA maintains active collaboration with sister associations in Europe and worldwide and is open to further partnership with similar counterparts.
