Policy Recommendations

As an industry think tank focused on the development of the Korean capital market and financial investment industry, KOFIA studies the various systems and factors that the industry and investors feel need improvement and proposes solutions to the government, supervisory agencies, and lawmakers.

In order to perform such tasks, KOFIA networks with the financial investment industry, academia, and research institutes over current issues and operates various councils and task forces with CEOs, executive officers, and working-level personnel from member firms. As a result, the association is able to further its efforts to reflect the broad interests of the financial investment industry.

In addition, KOFIA tracks statistics related to the capital market, such as the trends of short and long-term funds, and the fund and derivatives markets. It also conducts in-depth analyses of the performance of various financial investment firms. These services are provided to assist market participants with making well-informed investment decisions and the government with policy-making.
