Sapin II - Expecting a visit from the French Anti-Corruption Agency? Our advice on how to make sure you are prepared for a regulatory inspection from this new authority, and on how to interact with the inspection team to optimise the outcome for your firm.
16:00 - London
17:00 - Paris
This webinar will provide advice on how to make sure you are prepared for a regulatory inspection by the new anti-corruption authority in France, and on how to interact with the inspection team to optimise the outcome for your firm.
One year on from the Sapin II law’s entry into force, the French Anti-corruption Agency (FAA) has published guidance to assist regulated firms and a number of inspections have commenced, just as the authority announced at the beginning of 2017. The FAA has issued a comprehensive list of 163 questions to help firms prepare for a visit, although at first glance the scope and content of the information and documents seem all-encompassing, and references to internal controls and an ongoing compliance programme are prominent.
Thorough preparation is essential to ensure that firms can provide the requested information in a timely fashion, and to identify staff members who may be interviewed and ensure they are properly briefed ahead of their contact with the investigating team.
In this webinar we will address the key points that the FAA will be looking to verify, examining whether the overall anti-corruption framework properly covers the firm’s activities and is effective.
Firms that can demonstrate their understanding of the regulator’s agenda during an inspection process and take an active role is the inspection process should be well placed to ensure the best possible outcome.
Jean-Jaques Quang, a director at Duff & Phelps, is in charge of compliance and risk activities in France. He has hands-on experience of many anti-corruption frameworks internationally and more recently in France, working for large international corporates on both the preventive compliance aspects and on detecting corruption with corporate investigations.
Hannah Rossiter, a director at Duff & Phelps, is in charge of compliance and regulatory activities in France. She has significant experience with inspections with French administrative authorities such as the ACPR, AMF and FAA, and advises and prepares clients ahead of or during the regulatory inspection process.

Sapin II - les contrôles administratifs de l'AFA : comment s'y préparer? comment interagir avec l'Agence lors des contrôles?
10:00 - London
11:00 - Paris
Un an après l'entrée en vigueur de Sapin 2, les contrôles administratifs de l'AFA sont désormais rodés et s'effectuent avec un rythme de croisière conforme aux volontés du régulateur. Bien que l'AFA propose un canevas de revue composé de 163 questions, il convient de se préparer méthodiquement à l'arrivée du régulateur, tant sur les documents à rassembler et à présenter de manière séquentielle, que sur les interlocuteurs identifiés et amenés à interagir avec les inspecteurs.
Lors de ce webinar, nous discuterons les éléments clés abordés par le régulateur, pour apprécier la cohérence globale d'un dispositif, au-delà de l'efficacité requise.
Anticiper les contrôles administratifs selon la grille d'analyse du régulateur, c'est ainsi se prémunir d'un contrôle qui s'enlise et qui rallonge d'autant le temps de l'inspection.
Jean-Jaques Quang, Director chez Duff & Phelps, en charge des activités Compliance & Risk. Jean-Jacques possède une pratique des dispositifs anticorruption à l'international et plus récemment en France, pour le compte de grands groupes ; tant sur le volet prévention que sur le volet détection et investigation.
Hannah Rossiter, Director chez Duff & Phelps, en charge des activités Compliance & Regulatory. Hannah possède une grande pratique des régulateurs tels que AMF, ACPR et AFA ; conseille, prépare et accompagne les clients lors des contrôles administratifs.

Lånefinansiering – uppdatering kring aktuella marknadstrender, produkter och avtalsvillkor
De låga marknadsräntorna har medfört att den svenska marknaden för företagsfinansiering i dag är starkt konkurrensutsatt. Företag som söker finansiering har ett brett spektrum av produkter och långivare att välja mellan. De senaste åren har finansieringsmarknaden i Sverige också genomgått en diversifiering, både vad avser aktörer och former för finansieringen. Den svenska marknaden har traditionellt sett varit bankdominerad, men på senare år har nya aktörer som kreditfonder, försäkringsbolag och andra finansiella institut gjort ett intåg på marknaden. Dessutom har nya finansieringsformer tagit marknadsandelar; inte minst har vi sett en lavinartad utveckling för företagsobligationer.
Under seminariet behandlas bland annat:
