MLD4; smaller firms risk nasty shocks from the regulator
Tuesday, 27 June 2017
Today is the implementation date for the fourth EU Money Laundering Directive (MLD4); time to see if preparations are up to scratch or whether a flurry of FCA fines will be issued. John Marsden, Head of ID and Fraud at Equifax comments:  “The rise in high profile fines for failing to maintain money laundering defences proves that this issue is a key regulatory priority. Financial penalties for big players have pushed other industry giants to get their anti-money laundering procedures in shape. Aware that they’ll be in the FCA’s firing line, many big financial institutions will be ready to face a regulatory assessment of their MLD4 compliance processes.

Commenting on the anniversary of Brexit and Sterling's devaluation
Friday, 23 June 2017
Commenting on the anniversary of Brexit, Graham Bishop, Investment Director at Heartwood Investment Management, said: “Sterling’s devaluation in response to the shock UK referendum result has been the most significant market event in recent years. It has yet to materially recover from its post-referendum low and now remains vulnerable to even more political and economic uncertainty. However, this year’s General Election result seems, at least, to have mollified some of the UK Government’s hard Brexit rhetoric, which has shifted to being more pragmatic and conciliatory. Uncertain domestic politics, economic cloudiness and more ambiguities around Bank of England policy lead us to maintain an underweight allocation to UK assets.” 
On the anniversary of the historic Brexit vote - Comment
Friday, 23 June 2017
Commenting on the anniversary of Brexit and the vote’s impact on the real estate sector, Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, said: “In the last 12 months we’ve doubled our investor base across Europe, which now represents more than €10 billion in AUM. We have seen increased investor interest from the UK, continental Europe and the US for both EU and UK commercial real estate investment opportunities. At the same time, our deal sponsor base doubled, which shows that the complexity and volatility induced by Brexit has become a major concern for both investors and sponsors, and thus an opportunity for an investment platform like BrickVest.
