Steven Maijoor is the Chair of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). He took up office on 1 April 2011 and is the first chair of the authority and has been appointed for a term of 5 years. He is responsible for chairing ESMA’s Board of Supervisors and Management Board.
Prior to taking up this role, Steven was Managing Director at the AFM, the Dutch financial markets regulator, where he was responsible for, amongst other areas, overseeing the integrity of financial markets, financial reporting and auditing, and prospectuses and public offerings. In his regulatory role Steven has held a number of international positions, including the Chairmanship of IFIAR (International Forum of Independent Audit Regulators).
ESMA is an independent EU Authority that contributes to safeguarding the stability of the European Union’s financial system by ensuring the integrity, transparency, efficiency and orderly functioning of securities markets, as well as enhancing investor protection. In particular, ESMA fosters supervisory convergence both amongst securities regulators, and across financial sectors by working closely with the other European Supervisory Authorities competent in the field of banking (EBA), and insurance and occupational pensions (EIOPA).
