FIIS Embracing Change EMEA webinar series

Risks and opportunities for financial institutions and insurers

We will host our FIIS embracing change webinar series where we bring to life some of the business critical issues we are seeing, and explore how financial institutions can embrace the changes and make the most of the opportunities. 

Even without the headwinds caused by the pandemic, operating a financial institution in EMEA involves plenty of challenges: navigating your way through a sea of regulation both domestic and extra-territorial in effect, protecting your institution from new and evolving threats, avoiding the crossfire in trade wars while exploring new and more sustainable ways of doing business.

We will be having a very insightful discussion on the latest topic trends in Financial Institutions and Insurance. You can RSVP to your chosen topics below:

Crypto business in Europe – What are the regulatory requirements?

Wednesday, 19 May - 12:30 p.m. BST / 1:30 p.m. CET

This webinar will unpack the recent European crypto laws and what this means for crypto businesses.

Based on the fifth anti-money laundering directive EU Member States started to publish new regulatory laws to frame crypto business models. The regulatory frameworks range from simple registration to full authorisation requirements. Germany, for example, has made crypto safeguarding subject to authorisation under a new type of financial license. In addition, Germany aims to introduce a law on electronic securities which may be based on distributed ledger technology (DLT). On European level the Digital Finance Strategy of the European Commission seeks to further frame the future rule set for markets in crypto assets and market infrastructures based on DLT.

IT Outsourcing – How to implement EBA Guidelines?

Thursday, 27 May - 08:30 a.m. BST / 09:30 a.m. CET

This webinar will unpack the recent European laws implementing the EBA Guidelines and which will emphasize the differences among EU member states when it comes to outsourcing rules.

The EBA Guidelines on outsourcing deal with the outsourcing of activities of institutions. But what are the consequences for the market participants? In particular, what are institutions required to do in order to implement the EBA Guidelines (e.g. risk analysis and contractual standard clauses)? Does cross-border business in Europe need to comply with outsourcing standards of the home or the host Member State? Is it sufficient to comply with EBA Guidelines on outsourcing or is it necessary to implement additional publications of National Competent Authorities as well?
