Top 10 Legal Issues

Top 10 Legal Issues

The AMCHAM Financial Services Committee (Fincom) would like to inform AMCHAM members about the most important legal/regulatory issues that are impacting the Luxembourg Financial Services industry.

In each of the following Top 10 one-pagers, the committee provides its knowledge and high-level insight on the essential legal/regulatory issues including their key points, timing and milestones. As many of members have headquarters, directors or board members in other parts of the world, the following one-pagers may also serve as briefing documents that can be forwarded to those bodies or individuals to bring them quickly up to date. A one-pager is short enough for people with little time who only need a high-level overview. The committee intends to update each document if necessary on a quarterly basis.
 
 Each document covers the main elements:
• What is the issue/regulation about?
• What is it trying to achieve?
• Is now the time to act?
• Other key information

1. FATCA
2. MIFID II
3. AIFMD
4. Solvency II
5. UCITS V
6. Basel III
7. EMIR (OTC Derivatives)
8. Shadow Banking
9. T2S
10. Savings Directive for Insurance Companies
