We will provide an overview of the most important pending matters for 2014, including additional guidance on the “push out” provisions, additional regulatory capital requirements, guidance on enhanced prudential standards, etc.
We will discuss compliance issues related to the bad actor rule, general solicitation and verification of investor status, as well as best practices related to updating engagement letters, purchase agreements and other documentation to address JOBS Act related changes. We also will provide an overview of recent financing trends, including increased reliance on bought deals or block trades and some of the special considerations related to execution of these transactions. Finally, we will provide an overview of the rulemaking priorities for the SEC in 2014 and what you should expect in the new year.
We will discuss the similarities and differences between the U.S. and European approaches to derivatives regulation, with a focus on the extraterritorial application of each regulatory regime, and aspects of substituted compliance. We will also provide brief updates on the rulemaking status of Title VII, EMIR and MiFID.
