PWMA Knowledge briefing session- Complex Products Forum on 2 May 2019

On Thursday, May 2nd, the PWMA organized a special forum to share latest developments and updates on regulations regarding complex products with our members.  Sumit Indwar, a partner at Linklaters, set the scene with a recap of the regulations. He later joined Charlotte Robins, Partner at Allen & Overy; Lawrence Cheung, Chairman of the PWMA Regulatory Committee; and Peter Stein, PWMA Managing Director, for a panel discussion covering topics such as streamlined PDD, coordinating the SFC’s complex product rules with HKMA’s loss-absorption product rules and the challenges of putting an operational framework around the new regulations. Our thanks to all the speakers, and to BNP Paribas for providing the venue and refreshments.
