C&F’s timely virtual summit, ‘The Future of Carbon Pricing’ (27th April), will provide a backstop for recent political and regulatory developments.

The objective of this timely summit is to help financial institutions understand how the UK regulatory framework under which they operate is likely to evolve in both the short- and longer term.
With a date of 31 March set for the UK and the EU agreeing a Memorandum of Understanding on ‘structured regulatory cooperation on financial services’, this summit will provide a timely opportunity to take stock of where we are.

City & Financial Global’s ‘Future of Cryptoasset Regulation’ Summit is a prestigious online meeting place for the crypto community, the purpose of which is to explore the impact of the rapid changes to the development and adoption of cryptoassets.

The Summit is widely recognised as the most important event in the calendar for remuneration, reward and compensation specialists, attracting an array of influential and well-informed speakers and delegates.

The UK government has made it clear that it wants to build back greener as we emerge from the devastating impact of the Covid-19 crisis, since it recognizes that the pathways to prosperity are the same as the pathways to net zero. The financial sector has a critical role to play in this and adjusting the regulatory framework in which financial services operate is one of the principal tools to effect the necessary changes.

This second annual edition of this well-attended forum, which is being held online on 11th February, will focus on key changes to the financial services regulatory regime being made in pursuit of a greener sector. It will provide practical, detailed guidance about the steps that financial institutions need to be taking now in order to ensure that they are prepared for, and fully compliant with, the emerging regulatory environment, as well as examining the new opportunities that this seismic shift in finance will bring.
