1. Understanding MAR Compliance
MAR is a set of regulations intended to prevent market abuse, insider trading, and market manipulation within the European Union, the United Kingdom and EFTA. It aspires to ensure a fair and transparent market for all participants by imposing strict rules and obligations on issuers, advisors, banks, buy/sell-side firms, and legal and PE firms.
Complying with MAR can be challenging, as it demands organisations to have a deep understanding of the regulations and the capability to implement and maintain robust compliance processes. This is where our expert support steps in.
