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 invites you to a conference which will 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 is kindly sponsored by CFA Society Belgium.

If you wish to attend this conference, please register no later than 18 April by sending your name and company to magali.mm.moonen@belfius.be.

There will be public parking available at the venue.

We look forward to welcoming you at the conference.
