The Voice of Commercial Real Estate Finance

Regulatory (and Tax) Committee

Regulatory (and Tax) Committee

Since the financial crisis, it has become impossible for anyone active in CRE finance markets to ignore regulation.  The chair is currently vacant following the retirement of longstanding chair Clive Bull at the end of 2021. After discussions during 2017, terms of reference for the committee were adopted.

The committee seeks to:

  • monitor, discuss and, where appropriate, respond to current financial regulatory and tax developments
  • inform the wider CREFC Europe membership about relevant financial regulatory and tax developments
  • build relationships of trust with policymakers and regulators so they increasingly recognise that CREFC Europe is the place to go for informed and thoughtful input and advice. Improving CREFC Europe’s ability to inform the policymaking process more effectively will in turn help policymakers and regulators achieve their aims with lower risks of unintended consequences in a sector of which their understanding is all too often limited.

Please contact the committee chair or Peter Cosmetatos if you have questions or would like to get involved.
