Grand Hotel StockholmWe’d like to thank all the participants and speakers for their contribution to an excellent compliance seminar held at Grand Hotel in Stockholm on 3rd of April 2008.

Compliance seminar where speakers from Finansinspektionen, Mannheimer Swartling and CSA Partners covered regulatory requirements, risks and practical challenges faced by the issuer-community under the Market Abuse rules, was attended by over 50 compliance practitioners, senior representatives and other experts from companies listed in Sweden.

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.

Discussions and questions witnessed the relevance of topics and pointed out number of areas, where further elaboration of best practice and expectations from the part of Finansinspektionen would be highly appreciated in the future.
