With the cohort of legacy ManCos and SMICs reconsidering their resourcing models, I chat with Eoin Motherway of AMX about the options available to them to meet regulatory expectations. Eoin gives a taste of what to expect at the CP86 MiniCon session on CP86 Solutions with some valuable insights into the benefits and drawbacks of each option.

Meet Daniel Lawlor:

As the former head of the Central Bank of Ireland’s Funds Policy Team and the Central Bank’s Project Lead on CP86, Daniel was involved in designing, drafting and implementing regulatory initiatives affecting the funds industry from 2010 to 2017.  Investment Funds Lawyer for 9 years at William Fry, one of Ireland’s leading law firms.

Today, Daniel Lawlor is MD of Aquest; a boutique firm dedicated to improving your experience with the Financial Regulator.  

About Aquest:

Regulatory counsel, practically applied. Aquest was born out of a desire to inspire firms to find the most efficient path towards regulatory and compliance matters. Delivering training across the industry, we ran master classes, built an online-academy, and ran bespoke training on-site, for regulated firms all over Ireland. Nuts and bolts training has its place, however time and time again, we saw firms acquire a knowledge transfer, only to fall short at resolving how to practically apply it to their unique situation.

Today Aquest delivers regulatory counsel through Training & Advisory services for Irish Authorised firms.
