Malta Business Network (MBN) UK is delighted to invite you to another networking event at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe (UK) LLP’s London office, located in the historic financial district of the City of London on Tuesday 30th April at 6.00PM. Our topic for discussion that evening is investing in crypto.

Should the UK make investing in crypto easier?
The US Securities and Exchange Commission have just approved a number of bitcoin spot exchange trader funds that offer exposure to bitcoin. The cryptocurrency investors and firms in the UK are expressing frustration at being left behind the US counterparts. Is there the possibility of regulatory approval in the UK? Should the UK open up to crypto?

Our Speaker is Daniel Jones, Partner at Orrick, London. With a strong focus on the fintech sector, Dan advises some of the world's leading financial services firms on all aspects of their UK and European regulatory obligations.

He has experience across the full spectrum and life cycle of financial services firms: from determining whether the firm's products or services are the subject of financial services regulation, assistance in obtaining a regulatory license, interpretation of applicable regulations and implementation guidance through to M&A regulatory due diligence and skilled person's reports in the event of regulatory investigation.

His notable work includes advice to the UK Open Banking implementation body, the development of a digital only retail bank for a U.S.-headquartered global bank and preparing the regulatory license application for a leading global payment services provider.

Before joining Orrick, Dan spent more than a decade working in UK ‘magic circle’ law and ‘Big 4’ consulting firms, advising leading fintech's on regulatory issues across the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
