Bech-Bruun samarbejde

Regulatoriske forhold spiller en stor rolle, når finansielle virksomheder ønsker at etablere sig eller at udbyde tjenester og produkter i Danmark. Kun regulerede virksomheder, som fx banker, fondsmæglerselskaber, forsikringsselskaber og forsikringsformidlere, må udbyde finansielle tjenesteydelser, herunder investeringsservicetjenester, i Danmark.

Derudover er markedsføring og udbud af værdipapirer underlagt regulering, ligesom både direkte og indirekte markedsføring af visse andele i kollektive investeringsordninger, fx investeringsforeninger (UCITS) og alternative investeringsfonde (AIF), kræver registrering hos Finanstilsynet. Overtrædelse af lovgivningskravene kan medføre "naming and shaming", bødestraf og inddragelse af virksomhedens tilladelse eller godkendelse.

Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?
Vi er specialiseret i de regulatoriske forhold gældende for finansielle virksomheder. Vi rådgiver både danske og udenlandske finansielle virksomheder, herunder danske og internationale banker, fondsmæglerselskaber, investeringsrådgivere, kollektive investeringsordninger og deres managers, markedspladser, forsikringsselskaber , forsikringsformidlere og værdipapircentraler.

Vi rådgiver blandt andet om:

  • Etablering af nye finansielle virksomheder, forsikringsformidlere og investeringsrådgivere, herunder ansøgning om tilladelser
  • Filialetablering og registrering af udenlandske fondsmæglere, forsikringsselskaber og forsikringsformidlere
  • Investeringsservice-aktiviteter
  • Direkte og indirekte markedsføring af kollektive investeringsordninger (UCITS/FAIF), herunder registrering i Danmark
  • Regulering af værdipapirhandelsaktiviteter, herunder god skik og MiFID-regler 
  • Forsikringsprodukter og distributionskanaler, herunder god skik og forsikringsaftaleret
  • Hvidvask og terrorfinansiering
  • Betalingstjenester
  • FinTech
  • CSD’er.

Vi har indgående kendskab til både lovgivning og praksis og har mange års erfaring og gode samarbejdsrelationer med Finanstilsynet og andre myndigheder.

For at sikre jer den bedste rådgivning samarbejder vi, når der er behov for det, med specialister inden for fx Forsikring, Finansiering, Kapitalmarked, M&A & Selskabsforhold, Skat, Compliance og Persondata.
