The current financial crisis demonstrates the urgent need for better financial-markets regulation, for a better balance between investor protection and market development. Reforms are underway, at the European and international level. They are aimed at both the process and the implementation of financial regulation.
In this context, EIFR (European Institute of Financial Regulation) was created and given two objectives: (I) to spur thinking on European financial regulation and (II) to sponsor training for the regulation's implementation.
(I) The EIFR aims to deepen current thought on the design and content of « smart» European regulation and bring together its various strains. To that end, seminars on policy refection and study will serve as a framework for the exchange of ideas and experiences between professionals, regulators, supervisors, schools, and universities. The goal is to help defne long-term trends for tomorrow's fnancial regulation. In the same spirit, the initiation, support, and monitoring of research in fnancial regulation will enrich refections on the subject.
(II) EIFR has the additional objective of strengthening and completing training offerings in financial regulation. The Institute's training sessions, resolutely centered on European regulation's impact on business lines, last from half a day to two days and are aimed at specifc audiences. They are run jointly by university professors, professionals, and regulators, for groups of no more than twenty people, in a format fostering interaction.
These objectives are central to the mission of the European Institute of Financial Regulation (EIFR).

Executive managers of businesses or legal entities in France and abroad, subsidiaries of financial groups, capital markets, M&A, private banking, investment-management companies, etc.
