Emerging Markets Committee

ICSA’s Emerging Markets Committee (EMC) serves to bring together the ICSA members located in emerging market economies so that those associations can discuss and work on issues of particular relevance for them. Beginning in 2011, the Emerging Markets Committee has produced two important research projects, the first looking at corporate bond markets in emerging market economies and the second examining the development of derivatives markets in emerging market economies. The EMC has also worked to develop relationships with IOSCO’s Emerging Markets Committee as well as with relevant individuals in the IMF and the World Bank.
