TTIP and Financial Services


In a letter to U.S. Ambassador Anthony L. Gardner, SIFMA shared its views on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in response to Gardner’s recent comments to EurActiv.com.  

SIFMA strongly agrees with your assessment that a comprehensive TTIP is critical for economic growth and creating jobs. Not unlike
other business community members, SIFMA believes TTIP offers a unique opportunity for the United States and the European Union to further promote regulatory cooperation.

A commitment to engage and discuss how to approach financial regulation at an early stage of development is vital not only for regulatory policy but also for ensuring a coherent set of rules in the two most dynamic economies in the world. The significance cannot be overstated.
