A Revisit of the Market Abuse Regime

The London Governance & Compliance Academy is excited to announce the below upcoming Online LIVE Course that will provide you with practical knowledge and in-depth understanding on this specialised subject.

Course Overview 

European National Competent Authorities (NCA’s) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have highlighted the importance of the market abuse regime. The Market Abuse Regime (MAR) came into force in July 2017.

The Market Abuse Regime (MAR) and Criminal Sanctions Directive (CSMAD), commonly known as MAD II, is an extension of the Market Abuse Directive (MAD), implemented in 2005. The regime resulted in an EU-wide Market Abuse Regime across financial services. It established a framework for developing orderly flows of information to maintain a level playing field for market participants.

MAD II introduced criminal sanctions of insider dealing and market manipulation as well as aligning international interpretations of MAD forming a harmonised approach across Europe and the rest of the financial world.

Learning Objectives

This workshop will provide delegates with an opportunity to revisit the proposals aimed at strengthening and improving market integrity.

Attending this workshop delegates will:

  • Summarise the importance of Market Abuse reforms, the key legislative changes and how they interrelate with the wider regulatory agenda. 

  • Identify the key regulatory challenges across MAD II including increased monitoring and surveillance of trading venues and financial instruments. 

  • Explore key issues related to changes introduced by the Market Abuse Regime regime including Market Soundings, Issuer Disclosure of Information, Director’s transactions and enhanced regulatory powers. 

  • Develop an awareness of how the Regulation interacts across other European Regulations including MiFID II.

  • Demonstrate real world examples of market abuse from the United Kingdom and around the world.

  • Clarify the key financial risks affecting your risk because of change, knowledge, training and awareness. 

This workshop will be of benefit to anyone who is likely to be working within the market abuse requirements and wishes to develop a greater understanding of the regime, including senior management, legal, compliance and those employees at the coalface or conducting an assurance review as part of the second or third lines of defence.

This workshop is designed to be participative throughout. The agenda will combine key formal presentations, case studies and syndicate discussion sessions. There will be ample opportunity for delegates to benchmark experiences with industry peers and raise issues of most concern to their organisation, either confidentially or in open session.
