Perspectives Autumn Series | AML: Beyond the Baltic scandals – what’s next? | 2 November 2021

The next session in the Autumn Perspectives Series 'AML: Beyond the Baltic scandals – what’s next?' will be held on Tuesday 2 November at 1:00pm GMT/ 2:00pm CET/ 8:00am EST/ 8:00pm SGT.

Following a series of major enforcement cases across the globe, regulators are escalating the scope of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulation.

In the EU, the Commission has proposed new AML legislation harmonising the requirements across all Member States and creating a new EU Anti-Money Laundering enforcement authority. In the UK, the FCA has demonstrated its appetite for criminal prosecutions of breaches of the Money Laundering Regulations. In the US, the new Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 and the US Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) regulatory reforms are dramatically changing the AML risk calculus. Meanwhile, authorities in the Asia Pacific region are stepping up enforcement action in the wake of the 1MDB scandal.

Our panel will highlight the latest AML trends across the EU, UK, US and Asia Pacific regions, and what you should be doing in response.

If you are a client of the firm and would like to attend, please contact the London Perspectives Events Team.

COP26 Perspectives Series | Electric vehicles: Low-carbon mobility – getting to net-zero | 3 November 2021

Consumer uptake of electric vehicles is taking off, but so is the realisation that lower exhaust emissions alone won’t deliver ‘net zero’. The overall carbon footprint of vehicle and battery production is coming under increasing scrutiny, with implications for extractive industries, energy production and transmission, and alternative fuel sources such as hydrogen. Our experts will examine how net zero is most likely to be achieved. 

This session will take place as a webinar on Wednesday 3 November 2021 at 1:00pm GMT/ 2:00pm CET/ 8:00am EST/ 8:00pm SGT.

If you are a client of the firm and would like to attend, please contact the London Perspectives Events Team.

Insights for Asset Managers | AIFMD2 Briefing Series | Part 1: Getting up to speed with AIFMD2 | 4 November 2021

Clifford Chance is delighted to invite you to a two-part series of webinars on AIFMD2.

One of the European Union's widest and most far-reaching funds regulation packages, the AIFMD entered into force on 21 July 2011. It introduced a harmonised, pan-EU framework for the management and marketing of a wide range of funds. The European Commission has been conducting a review of the AIFMD for a number of years. This is expected to lead to the publication, in late November 2021, of proposed amendments to the AIFMD, resulting in 'AIFMD2'.

Our first webinar will take place before the publication of the European Commission's proposed amendments to the AIFMD. In this webinar, experts from our London, Luxembourg and Frankfurt offices will prepare you for the publication of the European Commission's proposed amendments. Our speakers will describe the milestones in the European Commission's review so far and provide insights on areas of the AIFMD in which amendments are expected.

This webinar will take place on Thursday 4 November at 9:00am GMT and will last for approximately 30 minutes.

If you are a client of the firm and would like to attend, please contact Louise Smith.

Insights for Asset Managers | AIFMD2 Briefing Series | Part 2: The AIFMD2 proposals | 25 November 2021

Clifford Chance is delighted to invite you to a two-part series of webinars on AIFMD2.

One of the European Union's widest and most far-reaching funds regulation packages, the AIFMD entered into force on 21 July 2011. It introduced a harmonised, pan-EU framework for the management and marketing of a wide range of funds. The European Commission has been conducting a review of the AIFMD for a number of years. This is expected to lead to the publication, in late November 2021, of proposed amendments to the AIFMD, resulting in 'AIFMD2'.

Our second webinar will take place after the publication of the European Commission's proposed amendments to the AIFMD. In this webinar, our experts will brief you on the proposed content of AIFMD2 itself. Speakers will discuss the practical impact of the proposals and confirm the next steps in the AIFMD2 process.

This webinar will take place on Thursday 25 November at 9:00am GMT and will last for approximately 30 minutes. The European Commission's proposals are currently expected to be published before this date; we will reschedule the webinar in the event that publication of the proposals is delayed.

If you are a client of the firm and would like to attend, please contact Louise Smith.
