Allen & Overy Amsterdam has introduced a series of breakfast meetings called ‘Early Birds’, which is organised by the firm’s Amsterdam financial regulatory team and meant for financial regulatory and compliance experts.
In these meetings, new legislation will be discussed, with a focus on its interpretation as well as the consequences for clients’ organisations and possible solutions.
In the first series, topics to be discussed include the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), living wills and the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) IV.
On 17 April, Ellen Cramer-de Jong and Gisela Wolf will start the series by sharing their recent experiences with the AIFMD and issues in connection with the procedure to obtain the required licences. They have been involved in AIFMD licence applications, as well as in the analysis of whether or not certain financial products are subject to the directive.
The meetings, which will be held in Dutch, will take place every other month on the third Thursday between 8:30 and 10:00 in Allen & Overy’s Amsterdam office.
