FCA Finds MiFID II Research Unbundling Rules Working Well for Investors

Subscribe to our newsletter

Firms have also improved their accountability and scrutiny of both research and execution costs, including where firms have chosen to charge research costs to clients. This has resulted in investors in UK-managed equity portfolios saving around £70 million in the first six months of 2018 across a sample of firms. The review also indicated that research budgets have fallen by 20-30%.
