ASIFMA (Asia Securities Industry & Financial Markets Association) is an independent, regional trade association comprising a diverse range of over 165 leading financial institutions from both the buy and sell side, including banks, asset managers, professional services firms and market infrastructure service providers.
Together, we harness the shared interests of the financial industry to promote the development of liquid, deep and broad capital markets in Asia.
ASIFMA advocates stable, competitive and efficient Asian capital markets that are necessary to support the region’s economic growth.
We drive consensus, advocate solutions and effect change around key issues through the collective strength and clarity of one industry voice. Our many initiatives include consultations with regulators and exchanges, development of uniform industry standards, advocacy for enhanced markets through policy papers, and lowering the cost of doing business in the region.
Through the GFMA alliance with SIFMA in the US and AFME in Europe, ASIFMA also provides insights on global best practices and standards to benefit the region.
ASIFMA operates as an independent regional organization with global integration through membership in GFMA with global alliance partners AFME in London and Brussels and SIFMA in New York and Washington, DC.
