He specialises in the banking and financial services sectors, as well as in insurance regulation. His work includes drafting agreements and related information documents for the offering of banking, financial and insurance products; advising clients in relation to regulatory issues (including contentious matters with the regulatory authorities), and drafting agreements instrumental to the activities of financial institutions and insurance companies, such as distribution agreements, outsourcing agreements and tied agent agreements. He is particularly renowned for his counsel to banks, insurance companies, asset managers and financial institutions on business and regulatory issues, including implementation of MiFID, AIFMD and UCITS Directives, as well as consumer credit and transparency directives, and is also a specialist in anti-money laundering legislation. Stefano also supports banks, insurance companies and other financial intermediaries in defining and drafting internal procedures and manuals and preparing the offering documentation for the issue of financial securities and the solicitations of public savings (prospectuses and info memo).
