The new Market Abuse Directive (MAD 2) and Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) introduced across the European Union (EU) on 3rd July 2016 is highly comprehensive and complex. It introduces a very broad range of new and highly onerous obligations on banks and financial services firms. Storm-7 Consulting therefore created a new and unique training course covering the new market abuse framework. It covers a wide range of legal, financial, technological, operational and strategic perspectives. For the event Storm-7 Consulting partnered with the firm Sybenetix. The CEO Taras Chaban guided attendees through two sessions covering new market abuse surveillance technologies. In September 2017 Sybenetix was acquired by Nasdaq.
