Simon Lafferty, Associate, Banking and Finance, Fieldfisher

I am an Associate in the Financial Markets & Products Group in London.

I advise a broad range of clients on financial regulatory matters, including banks, broker/dealers, asset managers, hedge funds and corporates.  Recent experience includes advising on: anti-money laundering; conduct of business requirements; regulatory aspects of corporate governance; regulatory capital and prudential matters; remuneration code and other matters arising under CRD IV and CRR; the Financial Services Compensation Scheme; market abuse and market conduct; EU financial regulation (including BRRD, EMIR, MiFID II, MiFIR, MLD IV and SFTR); and clearing (equities and derivatives).

Prior to developing a financial regulatory practice, I worked on a range of transactional banking, structured finance and derivatives matters advising on, amongst others, receivables financings, bank and non-bank lending (bilateral and syndicated) and debt capital markets matters.  I continue to advise on the financial regulatory aspects of structured finance transactions (for example, synthetic securitisations).

In my spare time I enjoying reading, travelling and cooking.
