This new virtual classroom seminar will explore the relevant obligations under the legislation regulating market abuse, primarily the Market Abuse Regulation (‘MAR’), and the FCA’s regulatory regime.

The session will consider what the main market abuse behaviours are and what they look like and will teach you what to do next if you spot these behaviours.

It will also provide practical guidance and examples of how to ensure compliance, along with examples of what may happen when things go wrong.
