TOKYO (Reuters) – Global non-bank financials have not seen as much progress on regulation over the past decade as banks and insurers, French central bank Governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Thursday.

“We made significant progress in the last 10 years about the regulation of banks and insurers,” Villeroy, who also sits on the European Central Bank’s rate-setting Governing Council, said at a university lecture in Tokyo.

“There was a significant strengthening of their resilience,” he added. “We didn’t have the same regulation for non-banks, and this is one weak part of the financial global system.”
