Finance & Regulation

A collection of articles on the subjects of finance, regulation, exchanges and trading. I have mainly covered financial regulation in an EU capacity, but I also have experience in researching U.S. regulation, specifically in the fields of securities laws, exemptions, passporting requirements, investment schemes and more. Likewise, I have authored many well-read articles on security tokens, a huge emergent market - with a dearth of quality, knowledgeable writers. If it's STO or security token writing you require, I've got the relevant skills.
