Capital Adequacy and Basel, CRD IV, MiFID, the Prospectus Directive, the Transparency Directive ... and many more How much do you know about the new regulations that are already in force and impacting your daily work in the capital market and the ones that are still in the pipeline? How do the institutions of Europe work together to develop new regulation? Against a background of far-reaching regulatory change ICMA’s one-day, fast-track course on European regulation for capital market practitioners gives a overview of the new regulatory landscape for financial institutions in Europe. It puts the major European regulatory initiatives into the context of the global reforms agreed by the G20 and explains the European legislative process, while taking a look at specific regulations affecting the capital framework of banks, investor protection and disclosure. Global regulation of the banking industry and the wider financial services industry continues to dominate the agenda as authorities introduce measures intended to prevent a future crisis, resulting in more extensive regulation of financial institutions and markets and greater emphasis on enforcement.
