Prudential Regulation Review - Latest Edition

Despite their continuing focus on responding to the pandemic, September saw regulators press ahead with the launch of several other significant regulatory and policy initiatives.

The EU launched its Digital Finance and Retail Payment strategies, which set out its blueprint to build a globally competitive and innovative EU FS sector, by removing unnecessary regulatory barriers, while addressing emerging risks. These two strategic objectives sit alongside three legislative initiatives. The first is aimed at expanding the regulatory perimeter to capture crypto-assets that do not currently qualify as financial instruments, including stablecoins. The second sets out a framework for digital operational resilience, including the oversight of critical third-party ICT providers, such as cloud service providers. And the third creates the legislative framework to launch a pilot regime for market infrastructures based on distributed ledger technology.
