February Fund Manager Briefing - Singapore


Regulatory Initial Margin, Market Misconduct and Anti-Bribery


AIMA Singapore and Simmons & Simmons invite you to join our Fund Manager Briefing on 20 February 2019.
Regulatory Initial Margin – The Buy-Side Perspective: EMIR’s final phases of the mandatory initial margin (IM) requirements for uncleared OTC derivatives, Phase 4 in September 2019 and Phase 5 in 2020, provide perhaps the most significant EMIR implementation challenge for buy-side firms as those caught by the new IM requirements, whether directly or indirectly, will need to put in place wholly new arrangements with their dealer counterparties and custodians in order to comply. Simmons & Simmons will provide a high-level overview of how the IM requirements affect the buy-side in Asia and also share some of the lessons learned from earlier phases.
Jonathan Quie, Partner, Simmons & Simmons
Market Misconduct and Anti-Bribery in the Singapore context: Singapore’s capital markets regulatory framework remains robust and multifaceted. Joint investigation arrangements between the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Commercial Affairs Division of the Singapore Police Force (CAD) have paved the way for more effective and rigorous investigations into market abuse and misconduct including bribery and corruption. Simmons & Simmons will provide a high-level overview of the regulatory regime, including the recent major legislative amendments to the Securities and Futures (Amendment) Act which came largely into effect on 8 October 2018, and a discussion on investigations by the MAS/CAD.
Mohammed Reza, Partner, Simmons & Simmons
