FSB has reported on the results of a meeting to discuss long-term investment finance and the role financial regulation can play. Participants recognised the importance of regulation to financial stability but also noted that regulation should be treated as a cost of finance and stressed the usefulness of predictable changes in legislation. FSB will work closely with international standard setters to develop a set of key quantitative indicators that summarise the main developments in the provision of long-term finance.
