RIMES 2nd Regulatory Seminar: Market Abuse Regulation

Join us in London on October 27th where RIMES will host the 2nd Regulatory Seminar: Market Abuse Regulation.

Over the past few months, the regulators have made it very clear that the buy-side will carry the same level of responsibility as sell-side firms when it comes to preventing and detecting market abuse.

In its MAR Level 3 Q&A published on 30th May 2016, ESMA left no room for misunderstanding amongst the buy-side on whether their activities are fully covered by MAR: the obligation to detect and identify market abuse or attempted market abuse under Article 16(2) of MAR applies broadly and ‘persons professionally arranging or executing transactions’ thus includes buy-side firms, such as investment management firms (AIFs and UCITS managers). Additionally, the FCA has already highlighted several issues on post trade surveillance (TR15/1).
