19 Oct 2016 LECOCQASSOCIATE DIFC PRELAUNCH EVENT
lecocqassociate had its official DIFC Prelaunch on Wednesday, 19 October 2016. Our firm, established in Dubai in 2013, is making the move to the DIFC in December 2016. At the event, Dominique Lecocq took the opportunity to introduce our firm and the services we provide. He also gave a short presentation on the marketing of financial services and the impact of cross border regulations in the EU and Switzerland.
Dominique’s presentation focused on the numerous – and sometimes overwhelming – rules, regulations and laws governing certain activities in the financial services field conducted in various jurisdictions, and the complications that tend to follow. The presentation also touched upon the attempt to align these financial laws and regulations across jurisdictions and countries. This is becoming increasingly prevalent across Europe and within the EU, with the utilization of certain measures such as passporting rights (the right to access a new market without having to seek a new license), and entering into MOUs with other countries and member states.
