CRD IV IFR Ruler Ruler
Ward Smets

One of my new focus areas is prudential regulation, including the CRR, CRD and IFD. In addition, I support Charco & Dique’s consultants and compliance officers and, as a member of Ruler’s editorial team, I am involved in the ongoing development of our compliance software. I have a broad interest and therefore have no problem stepping outside my field of expertise as a lawyer.
