Merger Control Developments

Consider whether financial services are becoming too concentrated and whether more consolidation is on the horizon.
FinTech, Blockchain & Open Banking
What challenges do FinTech, Blockchain & Open Banking cause for competition law? How are the regulators approaching disruptors? What abuse of dominance concerns does big data cause in the sector? Analyse this and other questions shaping the future of competition law in the financial services sector.
Cartels in Wholesale & Investment Banking

Payment Systems & Follow on Damages
Gain an update on Mastercard/Visa interchange fees and consider practical strategies for follow on damages and private enforcement in light of the case. During this session we will examine the Commission’s investigation into Apple Pay and PSR’s market review into card-acquiring services.
Review Recent Market Studies
Consider the FCA's recent market study into the insurance sector, the CMA's market investigation into private motor insurance and where we are now with aviation insurance as well as what challenges platforms pose for competition law in the sector.
