The US regulatory system: A common language? (Fully Booked)
Tue 04 Nov 14 at Skadden, London

Following their recent event on the FCA regulatory system, the Legal Issues Special Interest Group are running this session to compare and contrast what has been said with what happens in the US, where regulators are usually more rule- (rather than principle-) based.

In the context of increasingly global businesses within financial services, and enhanced controls, investment professionals will benefit from gaining a better understanding of the US regulatory environment. A transatlantic Skadden panel will outline the key components of the US regulatory regime; Anastasia Rockas will join the discussion via video link while Ryan Junck and Patrick Brandt will be present in the London office. Together, they will describe how US regulation impacts on the banking, fund management and derivatives markets and share their recent experience of how US regulators impose US regulation on EU entities.
