The Financial Services sector is heavily regulated and the industry has been impacted by several new regulations and acts in the recent years.

The Thomson Reuters inaugural Financial Services Regulatory Update aims to provide a deep dive immersion in a particular piece of regulation. These half day events aim to complement, not replace the main conference in June – the format will be more interactive, participative and will enable you to discuss specific issues with your peers during the roundtables.

The FS Regulatory Update: Spring will be investigating the impacts of the EU General Data Protection Regulation on financial services. The GDPR has being a real milestone in the world of data protection and the countdown for compliance has begun – the timelines are tight and the implementation challenges are starting to arise.

Topics will include:

  • What are the Commissioner’s priorities and time-scales?
  • The future of data protection regulation in the UK and new regulatory reporting requirements
  • What are the extra-territorial impacts?
  • Is there any conflict emerging with non-EU law?
