There is an unprecedented level of proposed regulatory change that will impact securities lending currently under consideration. The technicalities of securities lending can mean that the impacts are not always immediatley obvious to the broader firm or compliance officers and it will be easy to miss something important.
Potential regulatory changes on the horizon which may impact your business (but not limited to) include:
- ESMA proposed regulation of short selling & Sovereign CDS
- Modernisation of the Transparancy Directive
- FSB review of shadow banking activity
- Solvency II and Basel III
Navigating the potential changes and ensuring your business is ready for cost effective implementation is a challenge to any firm. Only through analysis of the regulation, and your business processes can you be assured of full compliance.
