On Friday 25 September 2020 the book ‘European Financial Regulation – Levelling the Cross-Sectoral Playing Field’, published by Hart/Bloomsbury, will be presented. This is an ONLINE event organised by the Commercial Law Centre at Harris Manchester College, the Jan Ronse Institute for Company and Financial Law of KU Leuven University, and The Radboud Business Law Institute at Radboud University, Nijmegen.

This book brings together insights developed by distinguished researchers and industry professionals in a series of articles analyzing the main areas of EU financial regulation from a cross-sectoral perspective. For each specific research theme – including prudential regulation, corporate governance and conduct of business rules – the similarities, as well as gaps, overlaps and unjustifiable differences between banking, securities and insurance regulation, are clearly presented and discussed. This innovative approach is aimed at informing law and policymakers on potential improvements to EU financial regulation whilst also supporting legal and compliance professionals applying the current framework or looking to streamline compliance processes.
