Brexit is thrusting Luxembourg as a jurisdiction into the limelight. We should expect increased enforcement to follow.
"For firms deciding to locate their operations in Luxembourg, that means the question is no longer just one of costs and convenience, but also of robustness in the face of regulatory scrutiny. That’s because it is no longer a question of if firms’ choices in this regard will be tested, but when."
The Global Enforcement Review (GER) provides analysis and commentary on global enforcement trends in the financial services industry. To compile this report, we studied published data released by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) of Hong Kong in 2016 and recent years. We have also explored the enforcement trends in various offshore jurisdictions.
