Recorded Webinar: Managing data, research and trading challenges in the countdown to MiFID II

10 October 2017

MiFID II is a far-reaching regulatory directive, years in the works, but now just a few short months from taking effect on January 3. The European Union regulation will have global impact, in areas including unbundling payments for asset management research, allowing systematic internalizers latitude to handle more types of instruments, data management methods and the definition of best execution of trades. In addition, MiFID II tightens the transparency requirements for order detail disclosure and transaction reporting.

Listen to the webinar to find out about:

  • The industry’s grasp on the multiple functions and aspects subject to MiFID II
  • Preparedness for the upcoming deadline and what may happen after January 3
  • How the directive may affect business with parties outside the EU
  • How the directive may change how financial services firms conduct trading
