Regulators

Fideres provides support to regulatory bodies conducting investigations into alleged financial markets manipulation and other regulatory breaches.

We regularly contribute to the debate for the reform of the financial system by providing our input to:

  • regulatory consultations,

  • parlimentary enquires

  • and industry bodies

An example of our work can be seen here where we advise the Financial Stability Board with regards to foreign exchange benchmarks.

I think [Fideres'] damages model that it's developed at this stage [...] is the most sophisticated to date.
