What is the Enlarged Contact Group?
The Enlarged Contact Group (ECG) on the supervision of collective investment schemes is an informal group of regulators that was formed in 1975. Originally, its members were exclusively regulatory authorities of the European Union’s member states. Since 1975, the membership of the ECG has expanded considerably, covering other countries such as South Africa, Switzerland and Jersey. The ECG assembles on a yearly basis to discuss current matters related to regulation and to foster international cooperation.
