Annual International Regulatory Summit

20 Apr 2010

Regulation without Borders - From Principles to Action at The Hilton, Amsterdam - 20 – 21 April 2010

The Hilton, Amsterdam

Summit Programme

In a world of rapidly changing cross-border regulation, it’s vitally important not only to predict future developments, but also to find practical solutions for implementation. The ICFR’s inaugural Annual International Regulatory Summit, taking place this April in Amsterdam, will allow legislators, leading regulators and market participants from around the world to focus collectively on these issues.

Supported by our Founder Members and a select group of sponsors, the event will be an excellent opportunity for discussion, planning and networking at senior level.  It is an important part of the ICFR’s wider mission to bring clarity and a non-partisan perspective to the regulation of global markets.
