Regulatory Developments

Regulators focused on how financial sector regulation and competition law interact, including concurrency and co-operation between regulators, as well as how the CMA has been approaching regulation post-Brexit and its relationship with its EU counterparts. Also, delegates joined the debate on the role of consumer protection and fairness in the financial services sector.

Merger Control & FDI

Practical consequences of the CMA, the Bundeskartellamt and the ACCC's joint statement on mergers and what lessons can be learnt from recent mergers in the sector. 

Then, Foreign Direct Investment rules in the EU and UK and their consequences for the financial services sector were analysed. 

Open Banking/Open Finance, FinTech & Blockchain

Speakers discussed how Open Banking/Open Finance, FinTech & Blockchain were disrupting the financial services world, what problems they present for the financial services sector and how regulators have been approaching them. 

Cartels & Private Enforcement

Where we are with FX, bonds and syndicated loans decisions? How has private enforcement been developing in light of recent decisions, including Merricks.

Two dedicated sessions to spotlight specific sectors. An update on Apple Pay investigations and the Dutch investigation into Big Tech in payment market study.

How has competition law been developing in the insurance sector, including the FCA’s market study; and competition law concerns surrounding Compare the Market and price comparison websites.
