The Board of IOSCO is pleased to announce the re-election of Jean-Paul Servais as its Chair for a further two-year term. Jean-Paul Servais also serves as Chair of IOSCO’s European Regional Committee (ERC) and of Belgium’s Financial Services and Markets Authority.

Commenting on his re-election, Jean-Paul Servais said: “When I was first elected, I highlighted the importance of moving at pace on priorities such as sustainability disclosures and the crypto-asset market. I am proud to say IOSCO achieved its objectives. Under my second mandate, we will need to persevere including through a focus on implementation of our newly established standards. Given the increasing role of market-based finance, IOSCO’s work as a global standard setter is more relevant than ever, as is testament from our recently updated work program. It is therefore a privilege to serve IOSCO’s Board as its Chair and I am honoured to have been re-elected for a further term.
