Industry and Regulatory Advocacy
EMPEA advocates for regulatory regimes that promote a sustainable and competitive private equity industry in emerging markets.
EMPEA plays a leading role in regulatory advocacy by providing guidance to policymakers on international best practices for regulating private capital which supports governments to attract international capital flows by creating a conducive environment for the asset class. Our diverse membership makes it possible to assist in crafting balanced, objective, synchronized and informed industry responses that are welcomed by regulators seeking comment to material policy and regulatory developments, including consultation exercises with governmental and regulatory, NGO and trade bodies. Member law firms and general counsels are often called upon to address the latest trends in terms and conditions in specific geographies or sectors in various EMPEA-led forums, such as EMPEA conferences, Council meetings and executive briefings. EMPEA also consults with local governments and policymakers on global regulations; catalyzes informed discussions through the organization of programs and dissemination of educational resources; engages with industry stakeholders to open the dialogue on the impact of private equity; works with regulatory bodies to provide guidance on issues that may impede or otherwise affect long-term investment capital; and utilizes its peer market experience to respond to specific Member requests on issues raised by local regulation and policy proposals.
