Course Description

This course begins by examining the regulatory requirements imposed on Canadian issuers placing financial instruments outside the jurisdiction, by means of, for example, international private placements or the multi-jurisdictional disclosure system. It canvasses the regulatory requirements imposed on the operation of the Eurobond and Euroequity markets, and compares the efforts made by a variety of jurisdictions to regulate derivatives' markets. The course considers the progress of harmonization efforts in the European Union with respect to financial markets, and the developing regulation of Asian securities markets. A general theme of the course is the extent to which global regulatory requirements in the financial area are converging, as well as a consideration of the enforcement difficulties for national regulators operating in an international environment.
