Regulation in the Information Age

Emerging Themes in Financial Regulation 2018

Find out what you should watch out for in the year ahead

The publication

BLP’s Emerging Themes 2018 publication provides personal viewpoints on new and developing financial regulation issues that will be impacting our clients over the year ahead. 

2018 is a landmark year for new regulation: MiFID II and GDPR both come into force, bringing wide-ranging changes to financial markets and data protection legislation, while the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (which until now has only caught banks) will start being rolled out to capture all financial services firms. 

Article highlights

  • The slow burn of MiFID II implementation 
  • The data conundrum: to delete or not to delete
  • Continuing scrutiny of tax avoidance and evasion
  • SMCR – protect your middle managers
  • When is information exchange anti-competitive?
  • The legal and regulatory challenges when faced with serious employee misconduct under SMCR
