AIM organises Conference on Financial Regulation

bankretouchéeHow do mutuals in Europe and the world deal with financial regulation ?

All over the world, financial regulations raise the same challenges: the necessity to ensure a balance between the objectives of stability and security for organisations, and the risk to implement too restrictive rules. Mutuals are dealing with regulations which tend to be more and more convergent and complete and which force them to find new and innovative solutions. Gathering mutuals and other international stakeholders to discuss the issue and its implications for not-for-profit healthcare payers is key in helping to tackle the issue without losing our values of solidarity and democracy, and to safeguard the principle of universality when it comes to access to healthcare.
