This series of FIA breakfast briefings aims to present the work that has already been done and the documents that are close to being finalised, as well as discuss the FIA legal opinions. The first session will focus on the 2017 Regulatory Patch which was published in June 2017, the second session will outline main changes and concepts in the 2017 Terms of Business and the third session will discuss various FIA legal opinions.
Who should attend? In-house regulatory and documentation lawyers at sell-side and buy-side firms, external counsel, consultants and regulators.
2017 Regulatory Patch
On 5 June 2017, FIA published the Regulatory Patch which aims to update the FIA 2011 Terms of Business bringing it up to date with recent regulatory developments, primarily MiFID II and MiFIR. Following a brief outline of the comprehensive Terms of Business Update Project, this briefing will explain the scope, structure and approach taken when developing the Regulatory Patch and how it is intended to be used. We will also touch on the Summary Table produced alongside the Regulatory Patch and some of the practicalities when using the Regulatory Patch in practice.
Speakers: Jeremy Walter, partner at Clifford Chance and Mitja Siraj, VP Legal Europe, FIA
