AIMA APAC Webinar: Shareholding Disclosure - The Challenges and How to Overcome Them

China Japan Hong Kong Australia

AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 29 July 2020.
 
In this webinar we will discuss how firms can tactically and strategically cope with data challenges, why coding your own rules isn't the answer, and the power of what the compliance community can do vs. isolated work.
 
The discussion will be in the context of increasingly complex shareholding disclosure requirements and having to respond to almost instant regulatory changes. For example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic regulators such as ESMA reduced reporting thresholds under the EU SSR, whilst others banned all short selling activities altogether.
 
In this discussion, we will:
  • Look at what the shareholder disclosure requirements are, and why all financial institutions need to address them
  • The current approach: how much is manual vs. automated; the use of outside counsel and advisory services; and the software used to manage the process
  • Common pitfalls and mistakes seen in the industry and how COVID-19 has impacted compliance complexities.
