‘The international agenda is a heavy one and this shows no sign of abating in the short term. Influencing and understanding the implications of this agenda – particularly the risks and opportunities this presents – involves a significant commitment in terms of our resources, including senior management time.’ John Tiner International Regulatory Outlook November 2005
Over 80% of UK regulations emanate directly from Europe and with the Financial Services Action Plan bringing harmonised regulations across the European Union no firm in the UK can ignore its impact. The FSA’s desire to simplify the Conduct of Business Sourcebook will mean across the board changes including mortgages and general insurance, which will be driven by MiFID led requirements.
This conference aims to develop an understanding of the impact of European directives and the challenges these bring to UK financial services firms. In particular to capitalise on the opportunities in the challenge by bringing informative speakers who can demonstrate practical examples of coping with the regulatory challenges brought in by MiFID and other directives.
Each of the keynote speeches will be followed by panel sessions including leading industry, HM Treasury, FSA, European Commission and other key influencers from Europe who will contribute to an interactive debate on the impact of European regulation and the challenges of managing the risks and exploiting the opportunities.
Delegates will have the opportunity to speak directly to the people with influence on European legislation. By understanding the challenges delegates will be able to realise the opportunities through practical solutions, real life examples and informative debate.
No other financial services conference will bring together so much value in one event.
