The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO ) aims to develop financial markets worldwide as well as to protect investors in these markets by setting global standards governing the securities industry. Within this area, IOSCO continuously conducts studies on securities related subjects. These studies are mostly in the form of questionnaires to be distributed to the member countries of IOSCO . The results of these surveys are then analyzed. IOSCO will then make a report on each study containing international best practices on the subject of securities, which will help the member bodies of the Organization to implement best international practices in this area.
The Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) is keen to increase the investment awareness of all market participants and to inform them of what is new in the securities industry. Accordingly, SCA has started publishing the reports issued by IOSCO on its website.
