Securities Regulation

Our Office was engaged for more than a decade in advising on many of the momentous issues surrounding the interpretation of the scope and power of the Stock Exchange in regulating the securities market under the Securities Industry Act 1981.

Since the enactment of the Securities Industry Act 1995 (which came into force in April 1997) and the advent of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) we have advised market actors in respect of their obligations to the SEC. Such advise has been provided, inter alia, to financial institutions both local and international issuing financial instruments.
