Launched in September 2014, the AMF Scientific Advisory Board Review is intended for the publication of original research, bringing together experts from different backgrounds and making a significant contribution to market regulation, investor protection and financial stability. The journal highlights AMF's desire to publish academic research and discussion on current issues relating to the regulator and the financial industry in France and beyond by encouraging debate to strengthen the quality of regulations.
Beginning in 2015, the AMF will grant an award to a young researcher working on economic and financial topics of concern to the regulator. Topics include the organisation and operation of financial markets, investor information, and protecting savings invested in financial products. The recipient, who will be awarded €3,000, will be selected by the AMF Board with input from the Scientific Advisory Board after candidates have been selected by the Scientific Advisory Board and AMF's departments.
