On July 26, the U.S. Treasury Department issued a joint statement covering the recently held sixth meeting of the U.S.-UK Financial Regulatory Working Group. Participants included officials and senior staff from both countries’ treasury departments, as well as regulatory agencies including the Federal Reserve Board, CFTC, FDIC, OCC, SEC, the Bank of England, and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority. The Working Group discussed, among other things, (i) market developments since the Russian invasion of Ukraine; (ii) continuing international and bilateral cooperation; (iii) the international financial sector priorities at the G7, the G20, the Financial Stability Board (FSB), and the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO); (iv) the risks associated with the Non-Bank Financial Intermediation (NBFI) sector and interconnectedness with other financial and non-financial actors; and (v) “the mutual desire to promote multilateral cooperation around risk management in global derivatives and banking markets.” The Working Group participants will continue to engage bilaterally on these issues and others ahead of the next meeting, planned for later this year.
