Financial services and regulation
Eubelius handles all types of financial regulatory matters (such as licensing, mergers, restructurings, portfolio transfers, cross-border activities and passporting) for credit institutions, insurance undertakings, investment firms, global custodians and other financial institutions.
We handle matters for financial, banking and (re)insurance entities in relation to regulatory capital requirements (CRD or Solvency II), resolution planning (especially in a group context), compliance, conglomerates, investment firms (including MiFID II), collective investment schemes (UCITS and AIFMs), anti-money laundering, market abuse, information obligations (also in relation to PRIPs), trading rules, and best execution. We have particular experience in relation to book-entry securities, including with regard to location, finality, collateralisation and the rules applicable to central securities depositaries (such as the CSDR or the IOSCO principles for FMIs).
We have extensive experience with the Belgian supervisory authorities (the National Bank of Belgium and the Financial Services and Markets Authority), as a result of frequently representing clients before these authorities as well as based on an in-depth knowledge of their functioning.
