Financial centre entities differ in terms of institutional structures and mandates – stemming from the types of institutions present, market size, and level of internationalization of capital flows.
As their core functions relate to market development and national, regional, or international promotion, many are structured as public-private agencies or market associations. Certain financial centre entities have regulatory and supervisory functions for the local market, while others may be linked to municipal government.
As the FC4S membership grows, their institutional models show greater diversity. In the 2019 survey, 42% of respondent entities were public-private partnerships, with increases in the number of municipally-linked entities.
