FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Financial policymakers need more tools and data to regulate investment funds and other so-called "shadow banks" after a boom in the industry, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said on Thursday.

"The growth in importance of the non-bank financial sector requires commensurate additions to the policy toolkit," Mario Draghi told an event at the ECB.

"Policymakers also need access to – and the ability to process and understand – high-quality data to underpin their decisions."
