Upcoming Webinar: Best practices for compliance with EU Market Abuse Regulation

18 June 2024

Date: 18 June 2024
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) came into force in July 2016, rescinding the previous Market Abuse Directive and replacing it with a significantly extended scope of regulatory obligations. Eight years later, and amid constant change in capital markets regulation, technology and culture, financial institutions continue to struggle to stay on the right side of the regulation – falling on the wrong side can be hugely expensive in terms of both financial penalties and reputational damage.

This webinar will highlight the evolving challenges presented by MAR as technologies such as machine learning, AI and generative AI come into play, bad actors become increasingly sophisticated, and legacy systems prove inadequate to meet today’s requirements. Moving on, it will discuss best practice approaches to compliance, provide practical guidance on selecting and implementing solutions, and review the role of emerging technologies in averting market abuse.

  • Evolving requirements and challenges of Market Abuse Regulation
  • Best practice approaches to comprehensive compliance
  • Why now is the time to invest in skills and solutions
  • Guidance on how to select and implement appropriate software
  • How to optimise compliance using emerging technologies
