Complinet to Host the First Pan-Asian Regulatory Summit in Hong Kong

Hong Kong S.A.R

Complinet, a leading provider of connected risk, regulatory and compliance solutions and part of the Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk and Compliance unit is pleased to launch the First Pan-Asian Regulatory Summit that will take place in Hong Kong on November 29 and 30, 2010.

The summit is the first event of its kind in Asia to offer regional regulators the opportunity to showcase their sophisticated and responsive approaches to the global financial crisis, including how they maintain and manage compliance. The event allows professionals to meet and discuss challenges, propose solutions and share best practices.

The summit will welcome a suite of high calibre speakers from the Asian regulators and beyond, such as the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand, China Banking Regulatory Commission, UK Financial Services Authority, FINRA, the International Monetary Fund and many more. The summit will be inaugurated by Martin Wheatley, the chief executive of the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong, and chaired by Jane Diplock, the chairman of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions.

The two-day conference will cover the Asian regulatory outlook, the G20 meeting discussions, enforcement efforts, capital adequacy and Basel reform, corporate governance, Islamic finance, fund management regulations, anti-money laundering, corruption and much more.

Allen & Overy has confirmed its position as the exclusive professional legal partner for the summit. Alan Ewins, Head of APAC Regulatory Group at Allen & Overy said, "Driven by the global financial crisis, regulators worldwide are wrestling with a huge laundry list of issues in the financial markets. These include prudential supervision, risk management and investor protection. These initiatives are being adapted in the Asian markets to suit local conditions and across our extended network in the region we are seeing financial institutions and regulators grappling with these complex issues. The Pan Asian Regulatory Summit will be a key forum for regulatory and financial institutions to discuss regulatory developments in the region and we are delighted to take part in this unique summit as the exclusive professional legal partner."

Leas Bachatene, managing director for Middle East and Asia at Complinet, said: "Asia's role in the world economy has risen to prominence since the global financial crisis and many now look to the region for guidance and growth. At the same time, it faces a range of challenges in keeping up with international regulatory developments while maintaining the economic growth that has propelled it into the world spotlight. This summit is the first of its kind in Asia. It represents a significant opportunity to address these issues and the steps regulatory authorities are taking to ensure the continued stability of the region's financial markets."
