Event Overview

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) regime replaced the previous Market Abuse Directive (MAD) regime from 3 July 2016. It focuses on financial markets’ integrity - notably insider dealing and market manipulation. It also provides for a number of preventive measures such as prompt disclosure of inside information.

ICMA invited delegates to a conference which aimed to provide insight on the MAR regime and its effect on markets, particularly with regard to sounding investors, and for stabilising, ahead of a new securities issue.

The event was kindly sponsored by CFA Society Belgium.
