MiFID II brought a lot of changes to the organisation of investment firms. Several policies and procedures have had to be adopted, new corporate governance requirements were imposed, product governance requirements were established, and new investor protection requirements were imposed.
The suitability and appropriateness assessment must be combined with the product governance regulations, investment advice is distinguished between investment advice on an independent or non-independent basis, while new rules were established on inducements.
The legislative framework consisting –apart from MiFID II and MIFIR – of numerous level 2 and level 3 rules is very detailed and demanding. Furthermore, new guidelines are constantly adopted for specific issues, which need to be implemented by the investment firms.
The objective of this Seminar is to provide, in a systematic way, a comprehensive overview of the MiFID II organisational requirements for investment firms considering all the above-mentioned requirements. Professionals in the field of investment services who will follow the Seminar will be able to update their knowledge in relation to these issues and attaining a good overview of all these requirements.
