We have lots of experience in providing perimeter guidance in relation to whether an investment type or proposed activity is subject to regulation, assisting firms in obtaining a MAS licence, and providing ongoing support. We know there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
We also help financial institutions to decide the best way to do business in Europe – be it setting up a subsidiary, or establishing a branch. There may also be an opportunity under MiFID II to carry out activities in Europe without having a permanent presence there.
How can we help? Examples include:
- Application of specific rules
- Application of risk-based capital requirements
- Adhering to client money and asset rules
- Financial crime issues
