EU Law - The Essentials and Basics on Financial Services (29 May and 14 June 2018)

over 3 years ago by Anne Marie Gilson
Eu Law   The Essentials And Basics On Financial Services Castille Institute

"The complexity of the financial regulation, decision-making processes about financial market supervision and regulation have long remained obscure or presumed to most (established) FinServ operators.” European Union legislation is of paramount importance to the FinServ industries throughout the EU Member States and others who participate (directly or indirectly) in EU financial markets (RegTech, FinTech, InsurTech, Big Data intermediaries). Indeed, the majority of all policy making regarding the regulation of banks, insurance companies, investment services firms and a wide range of other financial institutions, financial market activities and financial market infrastructure in the EU is now made at EU level. It is essential for those participating and, more especially, advising financial institutions to have a good working knowledge of the processes by which EU evolved, how it affects those institutions, activities and the general market infrastructure. 

This is the course that will give you keys to new opportunities, without presumptions!"

The following course in Malta is split over 2 afternoons.  On the 29 May (Essentials) one will have the opportunity to go through the evolution of European Integration, The European Treaties, European Institutions, European Sytstems of Financial Supervision, The Post-Lisbon Framework and Sectorial policies.  On the 14 June (Basics on Financial Services) one will have the opportunity to go through EU Capital Markets Union, EU Common Market, Evolving FinServ, EU Consumer Protection and Introduction to the Digital Single Market.

EU Law - The Essentials and Basics on Financial Services is being delivered by Dr Stefan-John Berry,  a lawyer with a postgraduate specialisation in EU Commercial Law and over 17 years’ experience in the financial services industry.  Stefan commenced his professional career at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and later joined Lombard Bank Malta plc, a well-established and highly reputable local retail credit institution, where he helped set up and consolidate the Compliance, Risk Management and MLRO functions. He then moved on to Middlesea Insurance plc (part of the MAPFRE Group), where he has provided Compliance and Company Secretarial services to Maltese insurance and reinsurance companies that passport their products and services in the European Union. Thereafter, Stefan has been serving as Company Secretary, in-house Legal Counsel, Compliance Officer and MLRO with a number of MFSA-licenced institutions, authorised to passport their FinServ products and services to other EU Member States.

Stefan is also currently very involved in providing advisory services on Internal Controls for FinServ and FinTech licenced entities.
