Global PSSL welcomes Dutch regulator as observer
Global PSSL is pleased to welcome the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) as its second regulatory observer. This voluntary, and strictly neutral engagement, will grant AFM regular access to certain meetings and roundtables that shape Global PSSL’s ever-evolving initiative.
Global PSSL has received significant funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, through the Sustainable Finance – Law – Stakeholders (SFLS) Network at Exeter Law School.
Grant request was designed based on earlier engagement with stakeholders shaping values-based banking, green bonds and sustainable project finance as well as initial contacts, research and discussions with staff from the World Bank.
About Global PSSL
The Global Principles for Sustainable Securities Lending (Global PSSL) is the fundamental global mechanism for aligning securities lending with sustainable finance. This voluntary initiative has been developed through years of research based engagement between Dr Radek Stech, representing the SFLS Network at Exeter Law School, prominent beneficial owners and several agent lenders and other stakeholders committed to positive change.
In order to preserve its impartiality, the Global PSSL framework is based within its own independent community interest company, led by Dr Stech.
