Thorough overview regarding issuers’ obligations as well as practical interpretations given by Finansinspektionen was considered highly valuable in view of practical need to have more legal certainty when dealing with applicable rules.

Insight into key legal issues provided by speakers from Mannheimer Swartling was considered highly practical as well as observations and recommendations on the compliance and risk management shared by CSA Partners.
