Eurozone Hub becomes the Financial Regulatory Hub Europe
Today you are receiving the first issue of our newsletter under the new brand “Financial Regulatory Hub Europe”. The new name reflects our newly expanded focus from Eurozone topics to all regulatory topics related to the EU/EEA area and the UK.
Broadening the scope and services of our platform, our team of 2.800 professionals in 27 countries of the EU-27 and the UK will continue to provide you with concise overviews and insights regarding pan-European financial regulatory topics.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank Michael Huertas for his efforts in developing this platform over the past three years. He has decided to continue his career with another firm as of July 1, 2021.
The current issue of our newsletter provides information on a wide range of current regulatory topics in Europe, including:
- The ECB consultation on its fit and proper assessment guide on EU-level
- The draft law on electronic securities in Germany
- The publication of the code of sustainability and CNMV guidance on ESG in financial markets in Spain
