There are over 15 exclusions to the full regulated offer regime under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA) that allow your clients to make offers with limited or no disclosure. How many do you know? The transitional period is now over, so compliance with the FMCA is mandatory. This webinar will provide practical guidance as to how, and when, to apply some of the most common exclusions under the FMCA, as well as providing an overview of the types of offers that fall within, or outside, the scope of the FMCA.
- Benefit from understanding how to structure offers to avoid the application of onerous obligations under the FMCA.
- Gain insights into common exclusions to the full regulated offer regime and relevant reduced disclosure obligations.
- Learn how to more rapidly assess whether the FMCA applies to a transaction.
