MiFID II: What’s Next?

With regulators indicating that they will enforce MiFID II in the second half of this year, how robust is your compliance solution? How ready is it to take on the oncoming requirements of the regulation? And to what extent do you need to review and renew systems to achieve a sustainable, industrialised and cost-efficient solution?

This white paper focuses on the ongoing rollout of MiFID II through 2018 and the challenges it continues to present for both firms within its scope and regulators.

It also details oncoming requirements of MiFID II, such as the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) mandate in July and formal introduction of the systematic internaliser (SI) regime in September, and offers step-by-step guidance on how to get these elements of the regulation right.

It also covers and advises on recently introduced MiFID II requirements, including best execution reporting and double volume caps. Longer-term implementation of the regulation across commodities and derivatives markets is also considered.

Answering the question of what’s next, the paper describes the need for firms to review systems implemented to get them past the MiFID II deadline and take an industrialised approach that will create not only robust and sustainable compliance, but also reduced costs and risks.
