Short selling: the impact of the new EU regulations on the financial industry
Price 350.00 GBP + VAT
In the current recessionary climate, the EU Commission, together with the EU Parliament, has introduced a regulation which will be common to all EU countries and will introduce a standardised regulatory framework for all short selling practices. The Short Selling Regulation (SSR) introduces requirements for reporting significant net short positions in shares and sovereign debt.
The FSA has issued an FSA Handbook relating to the EU Short Selling Regulation which applies from 1 November 2012. In consideration of these new rules, Academy - London Stock Exchange Group, proposes a half a day seminar to examine its impact on the banking and financial system.
The seminar will provide delegates with a detailed regulatory update and an overview of the impact on banking and financial short selling operations. Our trainers will focus specifically on:
- Implementation of the law in the UK
- Disclosure regime
- Settlement discipline
- The most common short lending practices, agreements and arrangement
