About Eurofi

The European think-tank dedicated to financial services

Our objectives

Eurofi was created in 2000 with the aim of contributing to the strengthening and integration of European financial markets.

Our objective is to improve the common understanding among the public and private sectors of the trends and risks affecting the financial sector, facilitate the identification of areas of improvement that may be addressed through regulatory or market-led actions and support the assessment of on-going policy proposals and the identification of new solutions when needed.

Our approach

We work in a general interest perspective for the improvement of the overall financial market, using an analytical and fact-based approach that considers the impacts of trends and policies for all stakeholders concerned. We also endeavour to approach issues in a holistic perspective, assessing all relevant implications from macro-economic, risk, efficiency and user standpoints

The Eurofi workplan currently covers 4 main areas (economic and stability challenges; financial regulations and policies; ESG and digitalisation), which are addressed in 3 complementary ways.


  • Policy notes based on the research conducted by Eurofi published every 6 months in the Eurofi Regulatory Update that outline key regulatory and industry developments, issues and challenges and proposals for tackling them
  • Views and contributions provided by key public and private sector decision-makers regarding these issues and proposals, published in the bi-annual Eurofi Magazine and the summaries of the events
  • Working sessions and debates between key public and private representatives on the main trends and issues in the financial sector and how to address them. These are organized during the Eurofi events in the presence of the main stakeholders concerned.

The output of these discussions and assessments provides a comprehensive account of the latest thinking on trends and issues affecting the financial sector and the priority policy actions needed. Once analyzed and summarized, it is widely communicated to the public institutions and the market as an input to European and global financial policy-making.

This process combining analytical rigour, diverse inputs and informal interaction between public and private sector representatives has proved over time to be an effective way of moving the regulatory debate forward in an objective and open manner.

Our organisation

The association is chaired by David Wright who succeeded Jacques de Larosière, Honorary Chairman, in 2016. Its day-to-day activities are conducted by Didier Cahen (Secretary General), Jean-Marie Andres and Marc Truchet (Senior Fellows).

Eurofi works on a membership basis and comprises a diverse range of European and international firms that support the activities of the association both financially and in terms of content. Members are involved in all the activities conducted by Eurofi, contributing to their framing, participating in the working sessions organised by Eurofi and providing input for the publications produced.
