Practice Insight is Euromoney Institutional Investor's news service for lawyers, tracking how financial institutions are implementing Europe’s capital markets rules.
Regulatory uncertainty now drives everything from liquidity, banks’ capital stacks and transaction reporting to the fundamental structure of the market.
But with the scope for interpretation of rules so broad, financial institutions are finding it almost impossible to establish market consensus. Their legal advisors, meanwhile, are struggling to form a clear view on their client base’s current thinking.
Practice Insight has launched to ease this regulatory uncertainty. It provides clarity on how the market is interpreting regulatory actions within Europe’s capital markets.
It does this by speaking to those on the inside. Our team of experienced reporters talks to banks, asset managers, exchanges and trading platforms about how they are complying – or failing to comply – with the raft of national, EU and global reforms. No one else in the market does this.
Practice Insight is split into conduct, compliance and documentation. At launch our coverage focuses on
As rules change, our content will shift too. But our coverage will always reflect the issues troubling our market.
