Conflicts of Interest

Seminar Overview


Conflicts of Interest occur throughout the world of financial services. They are situations where there is a tension between one or more sets of professional or personal duties. Firms cannot avoid potential conflicts arising in the normal course of business BUT getting conflict management right is both a challenge and an important area. It is critical to manage conflicts to avoid the risk of breaching rules set by regulators and damaging client relationships and corporate reputation.

Conflicts of Interest occur within all firms but must be identified and managed. Learn about the accurate identification and assessment of the potential impact, along with practical procedures that make conflicts of interest management effective, fair and compliant.

MiFID II tightened the regulations around how firms deal with conflicts of interest and all firms must manage conflicts, not merely disclose them. Learn about the updates from MiFID II and the impact on your organisation.

Learn to define what are conflicts of interest and what are your responsibilities.
