Tendo concluído que as entidades reguladoras procuram uma organização óptima das tarefas de supervisão à medida que muda a natureza e complexidade dos mercados, o grupo de trabalho procura clarificar as vantagens e fraquezas dos diferentes tipos de sistemas regulatórios dos principais mercados. O projecto examina as quatro principais abordagens regulatórias adoptadas: institucional (por estatuto legal), funcional (por natureza da actividade), integrada (regulador único e integrado) e gémea (responsabilidades partilhadas por dois reguladores).
O grupo analisou os sistemas regulatórios de 17 mercados chave, seleccionados de acordo com a sua dimensão e importância para o sistema financeiro global. Os mercados incluídos foram: Alemanha, Austrália, Brasil, Canadá, China, Espanha, Estados Unidos, França, Holanda, Hong Kong, Itália, Japão, México, Qatar, Reino Unido, Singapura e Suíça.

O relatório pede aos decisores políticos para capacitar os sistemas reguladores financeiros com novas ferramentas para melhorar a estabilidade económica e potencialmente diminuir a gravidade de futuras crises econômicas.
