More about our speakers:

Nick Taplin



Nick Taplin is responsible for EMEA pre-sales at Duco, a provider of self-service reconciliations. His background is in multiple areas of financial technology, from sell-side broker systems to enterprise data management.

As Duco’s lead MIFID II consultant, he has engaged with several ARMs and end clients about their MiFID preparations, assisting them to implement Duco’s solutions both for mandated reconciliations and for the many new internal controls required by the legislation.

Whilst his primary area of expertise on MIFID II is in the MIFIR RTS 22 provisions, reconciliations, data transformation and normalisation have a far wider-ranging impact than this and so he has been working across the industry to resolve problems with transaction, regulatory and static data.
