RegTech Insight Webinars Countdown:

Upcoming Webinar: Market Abuse Regulation: How to Detect and Analyse Abusive Market Transactions

28 March 2023

Date: 28 March 2023
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

Market abuse is a potential problem for many financial institutions. It typically covers insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation, and is often difficult to detect and report in line with regulations such as Market Abuse Regulation – or MAR, and its UK equivalent.

While compliance with MAR is a challenge, non-compliance carries heavy penalties for both institutions and individual employees. ESMA issued 366 penalties totaling over €54 million in 2022, and in December only, the FCA fined three brokers over £4 million.

These eye-watering fines, as well as reputational damage, sanctions against the business, and ultimately, custodial sentences, result from failure to comply with appropriate monitoring and reporting. But there are solutions that can help firms stay on the right side of regulation.

This webinar will review the requirements of MAR, consider approaches to compliance, and provide expert guidance on how to detect and analyse potentially abusive market transactions. It will also touch on efficient and effective technology solutions.

  • Typical scenarios that cause firms to be penalised
