Best execution is the obligation when acting on behalf of a client, to take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result for the execution of the client orders, having due regard to the wider market in any relevant instrument. The execution process has to be reflected in an execution policy, which must specify the execution venues, and, where derivatives are concerned, must address and distinguish between Exchange Traded products and Over-The-Counter (OTC) products.
Best Execution as part of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive Recast (MiFID II) aims to strengthen investor protection by making markets more efficient and transparent. The first set of reporting expected to be produced by firms is April 2018.
Participants will learn how to:
• Recognize and apply major requirements relating to Best execution by MiFiD 2
• Construct RTS 27
• Construct RTS 28
• Apply Best Execution as per CySec Law 87(i)/2017
• Utilize Best Execution requirements for internal processes optimization
Who Should attend
Dealing room, Brokerage Departments, Compliance, Risk Management, Management, and Technical staff. This workshop will be of benefit to anyone who is likely to be affected by the changes to be brought in by MiFIR Reporting, including senior management, legal, compliance and those employees at the coalface.
This workshop is designed to be participative throughout. The agenda will combine key formal presentations, case studies and syndicate discussion sessions. There will be ample opportunity for delegates to benchmark experiences with industry peers and raise issues of most concern to their organisation, either confidentially or in open session.
We recommend to participants to bring their personal laptop for the workshop.
Microsoft Excel will be used.
