One year of the EU Securitisation Regulation application – taking stock in the EU and beyond

Please join us in January for a breakfast seminar led by the A&O Securitisation team covering the latest position with respect to the new EU Securitisation Regulation framework. The new framework has been in application since 1 January 2019, but the securitisation markets faced many uncertainties at the start of 2019, because the development of new regulatory guidance and technical standards needed to fully implement the new regime was being delayed. Whilst the final (or near final) position is now clearer on some fronts, there is still a need for finding practical solutions for some remaining uncertainties. This seminar will allow experts from our team to highlight key issues from the perspectives of different market players and provide updates on the latest practice points.
