CONSOB THREE YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN 2016-2018

CONSOB has approved the Strategic Plan for the three-year period 2016-2018 continuing on the previous editions for the years 2010-2012 and 2013-2015.

The plan defines the objectives that CONSOB considers priority for the changing economic scenario and regulatory framework that could affect achievement of its institutional purposes, which have the final aim of investor protection. It is based on elements of information deriving from the previous planning cycle, for assessment of risks linked to forecasts of evolution both on the economic-financial scene and the relevant institutional context. The new Plan takes special account of the following macro trends:

- cross-border integration: the Capital Markets Union;

- digitalisation of the financial sector.

Over the next three-year period, CONSOB activity will focus on pursuing three synergistic, strategic goals:

- helping to diversity the channels that supply the domestic financial system in working towards sustainable growth of the capital market;

- protecting investors, by promoting conscious investment choices and, at the same time, reducing the risk of harmful practices;

- implementing an organisational set up that can anticipate and adapt promptly and efficiently to changing contexts.

The document is available on the website www.consob.it.
