Laws, regulations and guidelines are essential to define the playing field for the investment professional. At the end of this module you will understand how this works, how the different regulations interact and what the underlying ethical principles and assumption choices are. These will help you perform in this seemingly complex playing field. 

  • Participants will have more knowledge about the framework of European and Dutch laws and regulations that apply to the financial sector. In particular the investment sector
  • During this module participants will work on various assignments. These assignments will add to both communication skills (presenting and explaining complex ideas simply) and curiosity (openness to new ideas and challenging conventional wisdom) to find solutions to complex regulatory and ethical issues. 

Topics include: 

  • Principles around MiFID and Wft
  • Basic principles around the theory of financial ethics 
  • Legislation and guidelines regarding MAR (Market Abuse Regulation) and MAD (Market Abuse Directive)
  • Legislation and guidelines regarding European and Dutch laws and regulations for investment funds
  • Legislation and guidelines regarding European and Dutch laws and regulations for pension funds

Ideally you are a mid to senior career professional. Typically you work as: 
• investment manager
• portfolio manager
• risk manager
• investment administrator
• investment advisor
• fiduciary manager
• client manager

Participants could also work in a capacity of trustee, work for a regulatory authority or hold a supervisory position.
