► Présentation de l'ouvrage en 4ième de couverture :

L'ouvrage examine l'évolution du droit suisse de la gestion de fortune depuis la crise de 2008.

L'auteur expose et analyse, dans une perspective non seulement théorique, mais également pratique, les règles applicables aux relations entre les clients et les prestataires de services financiers, les rapports contractuels qui se nouent et l'exécution des prestations qui en découle. L'ouvrage présente également le fonctionnement de divers instruments financiers et les risques liés à leur utilisation. L'approche est principalement fondée sur le droit suisse, en particulier sur le cadre proposé par la Loi sur les services financiers (LSFin) et la Loi sur les établissements financiers (LEFin), tout en les comparant avec le droit de l'Union européenne.

Summary of the news: 

Archegos was a wealth management company whose activity consisted mainly in managing funds that were not themselves from the financial markets (hence its title of "family office"). Obviously, Archegos was proving to be too fragile financially in view of the highly speculative commitments it made on the financial markets and systemic banks were particularly deeply affected by the liquidation of large amounts by Archegos to be able to respond to margin calls.

As the mandate of the financial regulatory authorities is aimed almost exclusively at the protection of public savings, Archegos completely escaped the regulation and supervision of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, Regulation Law also aims to prevent and manage systemic risks, which are often multi-sectoral and even trans-sectoral, and this in a teleological way. In view of this and the increasingly important place taken by speculative behavior in the financial markets, the financial regulatory authorities must give up the condition of using public savings in their consideration of operators which should be regulated because even an operator not handling public savings can threaten the existence of financial markets. From this perspective, "family offices", not handling public savings but having a systemic dimension, must come under the regulation and supervision of financial regulatory authorities.

Teachings : Banking and Financial Regulatory Law - Semester 2021

Résumé de la dernière leçon : La Compliance, ne serait-ce que par ce terme même, est un mécanisme nouveau dans les systèmes juridiques européens, venant notamment en convergence du Droit de la concurrence, du Droit financier et du Droit du commerce international. L'on considère généralement qu'il provient du Droit financier et du Droit américain, qui développe ainsi d'une façon extraterritoriale ses conceptions juridico-financières. 

Est ainsi en train de naître un Droit de la Compliance

Il pourrait être celui qui disciplinerait l'économie numérique, laquelle croise étroitement l'économie bancaire et financière, qu'elle renouvelle.

Pour en mesurer l'importance et le développement, qui ne font que commencer, le plus probant est de commencer par sa manifestation incontestable en Droit français, à savoir la loi du 9 décembre 2016 de la loi dite "Sapin 2", suivant de peu la loi du 21 juin 2016 sur les abus de marché et suivie de peu par la loi du 27 mars 2017 sur le devoir de vigilance des sociétés donneuses d'ordre.

Teachings : Banking and Financial Regulatory Law - Semester 2021

Résumé de la leçon. Dans son lien avec la gouvernance, le Droit de la régulation bancaire et financière a l'ambition d'organiser la façon dont les pouvoirs s'organisent au sein des entreprises, son prisme le conduisant à orienter cette gouvernance vers la protection de l'épargne, des investisseurs et des marchés. Imprégnant ainsi le Droit des sociétés, c'est contre cela que le rapport Notat-Senard a réagi, puis ce que la loi dite PACTE du 22 mai 2019 a cristallisé.

Il demeure que si la société est cotée, ce qui ne correspond pas à toutes les entreprises, le Droit de la régulation continue à influer cette gouvernance à travers le principe de transparence. Celui-ci accroit son emprise lorsqu'il y a une perspective de changement de contrôle. En effet les marchés financiers ne sont pas que des marchés de rendements pécuniaires : ils sont aussi des marchés de pouvoirs, ce qui renvoie à la double nature du titre de capital : son titulaire peut revendiquer des droits patrimoniaux (potentiels) mais aussi des droits politiques actifs, même s'ils n'emportent pas forcément pouvoir de décision.

Ce marché du pouvoir et du contrôle des sociétés est par excellence le marché boursier.  Les prises de contrôle, qui pourraient en rester à la nature de contrats d'achat et de vente, sont entièrement gouvernées par l'Autorité de Régulation.  L'on part donc du principe d'une offre, mais il peut arriver que cette offre d'achat (ou d'échange) devienne "obligatoire", lorsque des seuils de prise de contrôle sont déjà atteints. Même lorsque des textes interviennent dans un sens libéral, comme en ce qui concerne le contrôle des montants proposés par les offreurs dans le mécanismes d'OPA ou d'OPE les directives de l'Union européennes demandant à ce que les Régulateurs ne contrôlent plus le caractère "équitable" de celui-ci, les juges admettent que par le visa de l'office général du Régulateur et la bonne information de l'actionnaire un tel contrôle soit maintenu, voire accru (cas Altice).

Le marché financier pénètre déjà dans cette régulation des pouvoirs sociétaires lorsque la société est "exposée" au marché financier par la cotation de ses titres sociaux, ou par le mécanisme plus général de financement de marché, les investisseurs titulaires de titres de créance demandant le bénéfice de la même transparence, voire des droits politiques analogues à ceux dont bénéficient les titulaires des titres de capital. Mais les entreprises, à travers leur structuration sociétaire, sont définitivement "ouvertes" lorsque leur capital, c'est-à-dire non seulement leur richesse mais encore le pouvoir politique, est disponible sur ce marché financier spécifique qu'est le marché boursier. Le Droit régule alors les procédés de "prise de contrôle", tâche première de l'Autorité des marchés financiers, car si le pouvoir est par principe disponible, la "loi des volontés" ne peut suffire.  L'on retrouve alors, mais sous une forme plus nette, les lois du capital, des volontés et des intentions.

Le Droit pose en effet le principe même des "offres publiques", les opérateurs devant tout d'abord révéler leur "intention" de prendre le contrôle, puis devant offrir à tout actionnaire une contrepartie soit en argent soit en titres. Dans cet achat du pouvoir, le Régulateur boursier joue un rôle central, mais les textes européens dans une perspective plus libérale que précédemment ont posé qu'il n'a pas à contrôler le caractère équitable du prix que l'initiative de l'offre propose, concentrant davantage son pouvoir sur l'information due aux personnes "intéressées", ce qui est excède le seul cercle des titulaires des titres de capital, pour concerner le cercle de la catégorie qui commence à s'implanter dans le nouveau Droit des sociétés qui se dessine : les "parties prenantes". Par la régulation des "prises de contrôle des sociétés ouvertes", l'on quitte de plus en plus l'idée d'une Régulation jouxtant l'économie administrée, parce qu'il s'agirait de la puissance étatique tenant les structures du marché financier afin que celui-ci soit fiable, le premier principe étant la transparence, pour aller vers une Régulation jouxtant la "Gouvernance" des sociétés qui sont exposées aux marchés financiers et qui à ce titre doivent admettre que leur fonctionnement politique doit être transparent, notamment au regard du futur de l'entreprise, voire partagé avec ceux qui ont un intérêt financier avec ce fonctionnement, voire avec également ceux qui y ont un intérêt non directement financier. En cela, le Droit de la Régulation des marchés financiers, en procéduralisant et en contrariant le fonctionnement trop brutal de ceux-ci, est le bastion avancé d'un fonctionnement plus général des sociétés, de nombreuses dispositions ayant tendance à être bilatéralisées dans le Droit des sociétés non-cotées, puisque cette distinction n'existe pas formellement par ailleurs dans le Droit des sociétés.

Read by freely subscribing other news of the Newsletter MAFR - Law, Compliance, Regulation

 

Summary of the news

Like every year since the adoption of the Dodd-Frank Act, the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) and especially its Office of the Whistleblowers (OWB) handed to the Congress of the United-States a report about the success of its program concerning whistleblowers, especially estimated with the amount of financial rewards granted to them during the year. This report especially presents the amount granted to whistleblowers, the quality of the collected information and the efficacy of SEC's whistleblowers' protection process.

If Americans condition the effectiveness of whistleblowing to the remuneration of whistleblowers, Europeans oppose the "ethical whistleblower" who shares information for the love of Law to the "bounty hunter" uniquely motivated by financial reward and favor the former to the later, as it is proven in the French Law Sapin II of 2016 (which do not propose financial reward to whistleblowers) or the British Public Interest Disclosure of 1998 (which just propose a financial compensation of the whistleblower's losses linked to whistleblowing). 

However, American and European conceptions are not so far from each other. As United-States, Europe has a real care for legal effectivity, even if, because of their different legal traditions, Americans favor effectivity of rights while European favor effectivity of Law. If it places effectivity at the center of its preoccupations, Europe should conceive with less aversion the possibility to financially incite whistleblowers. Moreover, United-States and Europe share the same common willingness to protect whistleblowers and if rewarding would enable a better protection, then Europe should not reject it, as shows the recent declarations of the French Defenders of Rights. It is not excluded that both systems converges in a close future.

Summary of the news: 

Although Regulation Law was born from the notion "sector", constant interferences between sectors and frequent interactions between some sectors and more general questions common to different sectors, make interregulation necessary. Compliance Law being the extension of Regulation Law, this interregulation mechanism is also necessary in Compliance Law. 

This interregulation can take many legal paths like letters exchanges between regulators, the creation of a network of regulators and supervisors at the world level or about some specific question or the adoption of a "cooperation protocol" as the AMF (French Financial Market Regulator) and the AFA (French Anticorruption Agency) did on 16th of September 2020 to reinforce their respective fight against corruption, against market abuses and for the protection of investors. 

This cooperation protocol between the AFA and the AMF has the following subjects:

  • A more efficient methodology concerning the research and the analysis of corruption and market abuses.
  • A more efficient prevention of corruption and market abuses.
  • A better capacity to give recommendations of new regulations to the Legislator.
  • A more rigorous monitoring of international works on the topic. 
  • A more coherent information for the public.

Are regulators the new teachers?

Introduction of the article

"Whistleblowers". This is a new expression. Which is a great success. Barely heard once, we hear it everywhere ...

A topic not of course or knowledge test, but rather a topic of daily conversation. Because it is spoken to us every day, in more or less gracious terms. For example President Donald Trump on October 1, 2019 declared to the press "want to question" the whistleblower who would have illegally denounced him and would not, according to him, have the right to conceal his identity, proof in this according to him of the lying character of his assertions against him, while his lawyer indicates on October 6, 2019 that he is not speaking on behalf of a single whistleblower thus taken to task but of a plurality of people who gave information against the President of the United States. Even the most imaginative screenwriters would not have written such brutal and rapid twists and turns. Spectators, we are waiting for the next episode, secretly hoping for the escalation.

And precisely if we go to the cinema, it is still a whistleblower whose dedication and success, we are told about, even the drama, for the benefit of global society, and in particular democracy, since the secrets are fought for the benefit of the truth. The Secret Man designates Mark Felt as the first whistleblower. Returning to what we often present as being a more "serious" media!footnote-1391, we listen to France-Culture and here is another story told by a historian who worked as an archivist on events that political power would have liked to keep hidden by possibly destroying their traces but which its trade led to preserve: here it is expressly presented to the studious listeners like a "whistleblower" .... While the same radio tries to find the one who could well be, as in a kind of contest the "first whistleblower"!footnote-1727? .... This rewriting of History can be defended because ultimately what did other Voltaire do for Calas, or Zola for Dreyfus?

It is also a subject of legislative discussion since in the United States the Dodd-Frank law of 2010 inserted in the law of 1934 which established the Securities & Exchanges Commission a complete device of remuneration and remuneration of the whistleblowers, whereas after having developed flexible but guiding lines in this regard in 2012!footnote-1698, the European Commission published on November 20, 2018 the text of what will become a Directive intended to give a unified European status to the character, in the system gradually developed to protect the one who was presented in 2018 as that "cannot be punished for having done what is right".

In Europe, the Directive first approved by a Resolution of the European Parliament on April 16, 2019 on the protection of persons denouncing breaches of Union Law and then adopted on October 7, 2019 (Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council of European Union on the Protection of Persons who Report Violations of European Union Law, different title, it should be noted, will have to be transposed into the laws of the Member States within the next two years. , since only "violations of Union Law" are targeted, but the character of the "whistleblower" is more generally targeted: he is "whole"!footnote-1699.

In short, the whistleblower is a star!footnote-1390. A sort of historical figure, covered in blows and glory, going from Voltaire to Snowden, both of whom find themselves embodied on the screens!footnote-1681 ....,

Consecrated by law, which associates with it a legal regime of protection to such an extent that, like a Nessus tunic, it is this legal regime which will define the character and not the reverse. When we read the law of December 9, 2016 relating to transparency in the fight against corruption and the modernization of economic life, known as "Sapin 2", we notice that the Legislator makes much of this character, since 'he dedicates its chapter II to him!footnote-1682: "From the protection of whistleblowers", and that it is by his very protection that he formally opens the door of Right to him.

But why a plural? Admittedly when we read the recitals of the Community Directive of October 7, 2019 on the protection of whistleblowers!footnote-1702, it is only a list of all the subjects on which it is a good idea to protect them, which therefore prompts us to see in this plural only the index of this non-exhaustive list of subjects which it is good to tell us, a sign of the lack of definition of who should alert us. Reading the French law known as "Sapin 2" makes it less severe but more perplexing. Indeed, this plurality referred to by the title of the chapter devoted to "whistleblowers", there is no longer any question in the rest of the law, in the very definition which follows, article 6 which opens this chapter devoted to "whistleblowers" offering the reader immediately a singular since it begins as follows: "A!footnote-1684 whistleblower is a person ...". No mention of diversity. The art of legislative writing would however have required that the qualifying article not only be singular but that it should not yet be undefined. Stendhal if he had still deigned to have the law for bedside book would have wanted to find at the beginning of chapter a sentence like: "The!footnote-1683 whistleblower is a person ...".

Thus seem to contradict themselves within the law "Sapin 2 the very title which presents the character, in that it uses a defined plural (the) while the defining article which presents it is in the undefined singular (one). ...

Here is a first reason not to advance any more but in a very careful way, in this "step by step" that constitutes a reading word for word: a gloss. This consists of taking the expression itself literally. The second reason for this technical choice is that the gloss is well suited to the introduction of a collective work, thus allowing more targeted developments to take place in other contributions, on the techniques, the difficulties and the limits of this protection, or on its history, or the reasons for the arrival in French law of these whistleblowers and the way they develop, or not, elsewhere.

I am therefore going to content myself with taking this already legal expression to the letter: The (I) whistle (III). blowers (II).

Watch the video commenting on the decision of the Commission des sanctions of the Autorité des marchés financiers - AMF (French Financial Market Authority Sanctions Commission).

Read the decision.

_______________

 

In 2015, a document supposedly emanating from the Vinci company reached the Bloomberg media announcing unexpected catastrophic results. The two journalists who received it immediately published it without checking anything, the Vinci listed shares losing more than 18%. It was a rude forgery, which a basic check would have established, a check which the journalists had not done.

4 years later, the Bloomerg company is punished for the breach to "disseminate false information" on the financial market, by a decision of the Sanctions Commission of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (French Financial Markets Authority) of December 11, 2019.

The company being sued argued that it was up to journalists to be accountable and not to itself, because on the contrary the firm had implemented both detection software and a code of conduct, even though there was no legal rule constraining it. In consequence, it would not possible to pursue it.

But the AMF Sanctions Commission stresses that, independently of this, it is a general rule of ethics for journalists that obliges them to verify the authenticity of the documents they publish, which they did not, whereas an elementary check would have allowed them to measure that it is a rude forgery.

In addition, the Sanctions Commission refers to the European Regulation on market abuses which in its article 21 targets the special status to be reserved for press freedom and the special status of journalists, but associates this ethical obligation to verify documents . However, the Sanctions Commission notes that this obligation, which was targeted by both the journalists' ethics and the reference text of Financial Law, was completely ignored by the two journalists. It is therefore up to the press agency to be accountable and to be punished.

However, the media entreprise maintained that the balance between the principle of freedom of the press and the principle of freedom of opinion on the one hand and the principle of the protection of the financial market and of investors against false information disseminated requires an interpretation of the European Union Law, which must oblige the Sanctions Commission to ask a preliminary question to the Court of Justice of the European Union.

The Sanctions Commission dismisses this request because it considers that the European texts are "clear", which allows the Sanctions Commission to interpret them itself. And precisely the European Regulation on market abuse in its article 21 provides for the exception in favor of the press and journalists but compels them to respect their ethics, in particular the verification of the authenticity of documents. In this case, they did nothing. They are clearly the authors of a breach attributable to the company.

________

In a less clear case, one could consider that this balance between two principles, both of public interest, is delicate and that an interpretation by the Court of Justice would always be useful.

Indeed and more fundamentally, does Financial Law remain an autonomous Law, putting first the objective of the preservation of the integration of the financial market and the protection of investors or is it the advanced point of an Information Law protecting everyone against the action of any "influencer" (category to which Bloomberg belongs) consisting in disseminating inaccurate information (notion of "misinformation")?

And that is not so "clear" ....

Globalization is a confusing phenomenon for the jurist. The first thing to do is to take its measure. Once it has been taken, it is essential that we allow ourselves to think of something about it, even if we have to think about it. For example, on whether the phenomenon is new or not, which allows a second assessment of what is taking place. If, in so far as the law can and must "pretend" to defend every being, a universal claim destined to face the global field of forces, the following question - but secondary - is formulated: quid facere? Nothing ? Next to nothing ? Or regulate? Or can we still claim that the Law fulfills its primary duty, which is to protect the weak, including the forces of globalization?

Let us begin the peripheries of Law in globalization.

____

Globalization is a confusing phenomenon for everyone. It is no doubt even more so for the jurist for whom words are normative acts and which stumbles on the definition of globalization!footnote-927.

Perhaps this is why lawyers are as impressed by the argument of globalization, which is often cited to argue that the time of imperative legislations is over, or that Roman law may well turn into its grave, Globalization would pass over the corpse of the Civil Code. The more mysterious the notion is, the more names it has, the more it sets back the jurist of good tradition, global trade being as upgraded when it is designated as "globalization", the zest of English leading to the globalization that parses Of reports, even written in French or Spanish or Italian. . The global language being English, the Globalization is English also.

If we take up the movement of this wave, it is appropriate first of all to take stock of what is globalization (I). It is only relevant that the usefulness, if not necessity, is posed to think about this movement of globalization. There is a legal imperative to formulate an assessment if it is posited that the Law has the mission of protecting every human being, a concern that is supported by the Law. Then, because Law is also a technique, we can ask ourselves the question of Quid facere? But in practice it can not be said that under the pretext that the field of the world forces is very powerful and that the Law appears to be very weak in its claims to protect every human being in its dignity, it would for this reason disappear from the World stage (II).

On the contrary. It is at the foot of the wall of Globalization that today we can measure the claim of Law to defend humanity.

Mais doit-on même admettre ce redécoupage du système juridique et de l'enseignement dynamique qu'on en fait ?

Pourquoi y associer si souvent l'adjectif big , à la fois si attractif et effrayant, nouveau Big Fish qui nous ramène à l'enfance ?

Ne sommes-nous pas pulvérisés dans un premier temps et reconstruits par d'autres, qui disposent ainsi de nous comme on le fait de marionnettes à tel point qu'on en vient à parler de "quasi-propriété" parce que la propriété des êtres humains à laquelle les entreprises songent pourtant serait un mot trop violent mais trop exact ?

A quoi ressemble le "Droit des data" car, puisqu'il est nouveau, soit il faut trouver ses racines, soit il faut trouver des comparaisons pour références, afin qu'il ressemble à autre chose qu'un bric-à-brac de textes qui définissent par exemple la "banque de données" comme un "ensemble de données" ou de casuistiques qui colmatent les cas, l'éthique étant confiée par désespoir à la notion si étrangement venue de "design" ?

La ressemblance la plus nette et qui permettrait de mieux le comprendre est sans doute de l'anticiper, c'est le Droit financier.

Or, les données sont le plus souvent la projection de l'être humain lui-même.

Et à propos de celui, Législateur et Juge n'auraient rien à dire ?

Que vaut la parole humaine face à ce flot de chiffres qui mime si parfaitement la langue humaine et si servilement que les ingénieurs donnent aux robots l'allure de jeunes filles souriantes et toujours consentantes ?

Contre la servilité consentante, modèle du marché global, c'est la Parole de la Personne humaine que le Droit des data doit préserver.

La Parole humaine, elle se formule en Questions. Et non pas de demandes. Elle se forge en Savoir. Et non pas en information.

Cette Parole humaine, que les data, série de chiffres ne peuvent imiter, ce sont les artistes qui la portent.

C'est donc à eux qu'il faut donner la parole.

Et la servir. D'en faire que la glose. Dans deux exercices de style. En s'inclinant tout d'abord devant un artiste pythique qui a décrit en 1972 notre engloutissement sous l'information et les images immobiles. Puis en s'inclinant devant l'artiste qui est le dernier homme que le premier appelle, l'homme qui par son art exprime la bravoure humaniste.

Le courage, c'est tout ce dont nous avons besoin.

Mais en avons-nous ?
