Global Markets Board Committee

Mandate

This Committee is responsible for developing the Financial Services Council's strategies and policies to support the continued growth and integration of the Australian financial services industry in the region.

The Committee’s objectives are to:

  • enhance the competitiveness and efficiency of Australia’s taxation system of foreign investors in managed funds.
  • ensure Australia’s trade and regulatory policy settings remain attractive to foreign investment;
  • increase international regulatory recognition for Australia’s financial services regime; and
  • improve regional awareness of the scale and capability of Australia’s financial services sector.

The Committee also has oversight of the Financial Services Council's relationship with relevant regulators and government departments that have responsibility over the Committee’s agenda, including: the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC); Australian Tax Office (ATO); Australian Trade Commission (Austrade); the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; and the Department of Treasury.
