G20 derivatives regulation - regulatory equivalence

In this seminar, we explore regulatory equivalence in key G20 nations, including its take-up and the differing frameworks. We identify some important equivalence decisions (referred to in the US as ‘comparability determinations’), assess whether regulatory regimes are working in harmony or are diverging across G20 nations and consider the possible impact of Brexit. This seminar will be of interest to general counsel, in-house lawyers responsible for providing legal advice to derivative operations and the regulatory compliance function across all financial entity types and across all regions.
