The EU Prospectus Rules Conference returns for the 5th successful year in September 2014. Bringing together corporate, banking and funds counsel with regulators and leading market experts, this event offers everyone the opportunity to gain a full update on developments in listing, disclosure and transparency legislation for primary market issuance.
Core to the event will be analysis and practical insights on the Prospectus regime as it is operates across the EU. How is it working in practice and how is it impacting on debt and equity market issuance and product development? Have the 2012 amendments eased the regulatory load and improved access to capital markets for issuers? What should Prospectus Directive III include? Join us to hear the very latest from ESMA on outstanding implementation issues and hear directly from national regulators on how they are working to align their listing rules.
Keynote speakers and panellists will also address the wider regulatory landscape with insights and updates on key developments relating to the Market Abuse Regulation, MifID II, CRD IV and PRIPs. How will proposed changes interact with the existing prospectus rules? How are disclosure and reporting obligations likely to be impacted? How will the liabilities of issuers change?
These and other key questions will be debated and discussed at Euromoney Legal Forum’s upcoming 5th Prospectus Rules Conference. Benefit from key debate and discussion on:
