The Market Abuse Regime seeks to increase market integrity and investor protection, while ensuring a single rulebook and level playing field across the European Union. The Market Abuse Regime strengthened the existing UK market abuse framework by extending its scope to new markets, new platforms and new behaviours. The legislation contained prohibitions for insider dealing and market manipulation, provisions to prevent and detect these.
Though the new regime came into force on the 3rd of July 2016, the implementation is incomplete in certain parts as it is connected to the Markets in Financial Services Directive and Regulation (commonly known as MiFID II), which is not due to come into force till the 3rd of January 2018. This briefing aims to highlight some of the key changes and remaining challenges in ensuring that the market abuse regime is effectively implemented. This three hour briefing aims to support those with the responsibility for the oversight of financial crime including senior managers, regulatory risk, audit, compliance and those at the cold face.
This one day workshop will provide delegates an opportunity to revisit the proposals aimed at strengthening and improving market integrity. As well as examining the MAD II proposals which will be extended to financial instruments and trading venues introduced the Markets in Financial Services Directive and Regulation (MiFID II).
