Our services typically relate to fund­ing issues, licensing and com­pli­ance issues, as well as issues pertaining to the day-to-day man­age­ment of the institutions in question.

The Financial Services Regulatory group also assists the asset man­age­ment com­mu­nity extensively, includ­ing Nor­we­gian secu­ri­ties funds and other types of invest­ment man­age­ment struc­tures, on matters pertaining to financial services regulation.
