The Market Abuse Regulation: July 3 and Beyond

Queen Charlotte
The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), which is scheduled to take effect on July 3, will greatly expand the scope of the European market abuse regime. This panel will take place less than four weeks from that date and will address some of the main issues that are still confronting firms as they work on ensuring compliance with the new rules. Further, looking beyond the immediate implementation challenges that confront the futures industry, the panel will also scrutinise what MAR will mean in terms of regulatory expectations going forward. This panel will bring together representatives of some of the main market and regulatory stakeholders who will help to shed light on this impactful new rule set. Topics to be addressed include the scope of, and regulatory expectations for, the new STORs regime; definitional issues around abusive and manipulative practices; surveillance capabilities; extraterritorial impact; and investment recommendations.
