The regulatory environment of financial services is expanding and becoming ever-more complex.
Are you up-to-date with the introduction, transposition and development of new regulations from the National Bank of Belgium (NBB), the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA), the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)?
