ESMA welcomes ESFS report: ESMA has welcomed a report by the Commission that concludes that the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) and European System of Financial Supervision (ESFS) is in principle working well. The report noted the need for some changes to the structure of supervision which might improve the ESAs' powers and effectiveness in certain areas, but concluded there is no need for fundamental legislative changes at this point.
