Any financial services firm doing business in Europe needs a firm grasp of EU regulation.
Whether you are establishing an office in one country, marketing into several, or simply investing in a firm regulated in the UK, you will need to understand how EU-wide directives are translated into local rules.

The structure of the EU regulatory landscape – how EU directives are implemented by member states
The parallels and crossovers between EU and US regulation
The practical steps to consider, including a brief introduction to
- Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (AIFMD)
- European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR)
