Hao Sun, Chief Operating Officer, Ketchum Trading
The number one question you’re facing when investing in technology is ‘is there a regulatory angle that I must be aware of?’. Complying with both international regulations (Dodds Frank, Volcker, MiFiR, Basel 3) and the how they are interpreted by Asian regulators is complex, time consuming and costly. In this panel our experts discuss how they have responded to these changes, specifically:
  • Fully understanding the technology impact of regulatory change in order to implement an effective strategy to meet the given deadlines
  • Pinpointing the nuances between local regulators in their interpretations and timelines for international legislation
  • Setting up a practical framework for open communication between your technology , compliance and legal teams to meet regulatory requirements
  • Discussing possible future regulations and the impact they might have on your technology
