SNL Financial and Sullivan & Cromwell Announce Collaboration
Firms will work together to publish financial institutions regulatory profiles for countries across Asia-Pacific
Hong Kong (January 15, 2013) SNL Financial and Sullivan & Cromwell are pleased to announce a collaboration to publish regulatory profiles for countries across the Asia-Pacific region coinciding with SNLs launch of it Asia-Pacific financial institutions coverage in 2013.
The regulatory profiles for 15 jurisdictions will include highlights on regulatory organizations, takeover rules, ownership limitations, capital requirements, and other rules and guidelines applicable to the banking and insurance sectors. The profiles are expected to be widely used by investment bankers, financial institution executives and strategy professionals, investment analysts, and others who have an interest in monitoring the regulatory landscape for financial institutions across the region.
From speaking to clients about our upcoming Asia-Pacific coverage, clients have consistently expressed how frustrating it can be to find regulations for a new jurisdiction and how inconsistent sources can be across countries said Clement Ma, Director of Asia-Pacific Financial Institutions at SNL. SNL is excited to provide clients with a comprehensive reference source for regulatory information, and thrilled to be working with Sullivan & Cromwell, which has a tremendous history in Asia and is a recognized leader in the regions M&A, capital markets, private equity, privatization and project finance markets.
Sullivan & Cromwell is delighted to have an opportunity to work with SNL on this timely and innovative project, said Robert Chu, Partner at Sullivan & Cromwell. In light of the profound regulatory changes impacting financial institutions worldwide, as well as the particular dynamism in the financial services industry across the Asia-Pacific region, I cant think of a more worthwhile exercise that takes full advantage of the special expertise of SNL and S&C in the banking and insurance sectors.
Sullivan & Cromwell will work closely with a number of other leading law firms that will provide jurisdiction-specific expertise for the regulatory profiles.
