CEPR APAC is client facing, responsible for client communication related to regulatory changes resulting from MIFID 2, EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation), the Dodd-Frank Act in the US, other OTC derivatives regulatory regimes (including those pursuant to HKMA and MAS rules), tax-related legislations (e.g. FATCA and AEOI [Automatic Exchange of Information]), Equity Research enablement, among others.
