Webinar Discusses Data Management Processes in Run up To MiFID II Compliance

The 3 January, 2018 compliance deadline for Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) is approaching fast, so how ready are financial institutions to meet the directive’s requirements and what outstanding data management challenges do they face? A recent A-Team Group webinar answered these questions and more, highlighting the need to get cracking on data management challenges presented by the regulation, and suggesting that problems can be eased by consolidating regulatory data in a single repository.

The webinar, Putting Data Management Processes in Place for MiFID II, was moderated by A-Team editor Sarah Underwood and joined by Geoffroy Vander Linden, co-chair of the FIX Community MIFID II Trade Reporting Group; Rob Pughsley, principal sales engineer, financial services at MarkLogic; Dermot Harriss, senior vice president, regulatory solutions at OneMarketData; and Greg Van Droogenbroeck, head of regulatory and accounting products, enterprise solutions at Bloomberg.
