AIR is a global nonprofit, non-membership organization dedicated to ensuring that the digital transformation of finance is matched by digital transformation of financial regulation, equipping regulators to meet their mandate to make the financial sector resilient, inclusive and fair.

Financial regulation should be a potent force for good. It should operate as an invisible force in people’s lives, ensuring that consumers are shielded from discrimination and abuse, that small businesses can access capital, that criminals cannot use the banking system to hide illicit activity, and that financial catastrophes are averted. AIR educates, connects, and supports the regulatory ecosystem to help realize these goals.
