RIMES’ Regulation Seminar to Assist Buy-Side Firms in Europe with EU Benchmarks Regulation Compliance

ESMA and AFG join impressive panel of speakers shedding light on the EU’s landmark financial services Regulation

RIMES Technologies, the leading provider of managed data service and RegTech solutions for the buy-side, is hosting its 1st EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) Seminar in Paris on 13th June. With the EU’s milestone Benchmarks Regulation set to come into force on 1st January 2018, RIMES’ Seminar will provide asset managers, owner and servicers in Europe with all the information they need to prepare successfully.

This year’s event is the first BMR Seminar to be hosted by RIMES in Paris. Following on from last year’s successful event in London, this year’s panel of guest speakers includes the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the body charged with publishing the Regulatory Technical Standards for the Regulation. In addition, speakers from the Financial Markets Law Committee, CMS Bureau Francis Lefebre, Deloitte and the Association Française de la Gestion Financière (AFG) will provide their perspectives on the EU Benchmarks Regulation and its likely impact on buy-side firms.

With the countdown to the implementation of the Regulation gathering pace, this year’s Seminar focuses on practical measures firms can take to prepare, including: an overview of Level 2 measures for the EU Benchmarks Regulation; the latest developments by ESMA and the related challenges for investment managers; the challenges associated with the implementation of new standards, and; the role of independent review in strengthening compliance with the Regulation.

Bruno Piers de Raveschoot, COO of RIMES’ Regulatory Division, commented: “If not handled correctly, the EU Benchmarks Regulation will bring further cost and complexity to buy-side firms’ data management practices. At this seminar, we want to provide asset managers, servicers and insurance companies with a range of perspectives about how they can best meet this regulatory challenge so their businesses are ready come January next year. We look forward to welcoming compliance and data management professionals from across the region to this important event.”
