Recorded Webinar: MiFID II: The Critical Need for a Strong Security Master to Meet Compliance

7 November 2017

Don’t miss this opportunity to view the recording of this recently held webinar.

Financial services firms are racing to meet the January 3, 2018 deadline for the EU’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II), perhaps the most profound regulatory overhaul of European financial markets for a generation. At the heart of MiFID II’s complex and far reaching investor protection and transparency measures is the need for robust securities identification. MiFID II’s best execution, trade and transaction reporting, and records retention provisions call for robust instrument definition management, requiring firms to put in place strong, yet adaptive, security master files of complete and high-quality instrument and listings data. This webinar will consider the importance of a strong security master to regulatory compliance at large, and focus on how such a solution can support the investor protection and transparency aspects of MiFID II.

Join the webinar to find out about:

  • The important role of security master data in regulation
  • Challenges and solutions of MiFID II investor protection
  • Meeting MiFID II data transparency requirements
  • Expert advice on achieving compliance standards
