The Forum’s operating procedures have been established with a panel of leading lawyers in order to create a safe and secure environment in which to conduct collective engagement and all of the Forum’s activities.
The procedures have been drawn up to take into account key legal and regulatory concerns:
- Inside and Confidential Information – UK/EU MAR and competition considerations;
- Concert party formation under the Takeover Code;
- U.S. Regulatory Considerations such as group filing requirements under SEC rules and the Bank Holding Company Act;
- Competition Law and regulation
Our Summary document describes the two main phases of our procedures: Engagement Proposal and Engagement Management.
The complete Framework is available to Members. Members also have access to further background material on key topics as well as Legal & Regulatory events hosted by the Forum.
