The second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) is one of the most ambitious regulatory reforms introduced by the European Union (EU) following the 2008 financial crisis. The outcome of that crisis led to a political reaction on how far the EU should go in policing the safety and soundness of the financial system which was translated in this regulation.
MiFID II can be broken down into five key themes: market structure, market transparency, trading regime, investor protection, internal controls and governance.
MiFID II will create new requirements for firms and fundamentally alter the structures of certain markets. Unlike MiFID I, certain aspects of MiFID II seek maximum harmonise across European markets. Implementing these changes will provide significant challenges for how firms operate.
This two day workshop will introduce delegates to a framework which aims to identify safe ports while navigating uncertain regulatory and operational changes.
Attending this workshop will enable you to:
The new rules of MiFID II as well as of the relevant delegated acts will be in force on 3 January 2018.
