Description

Event Details

 

MiFID II includes numerous provisions on investor protection especially as far as retail investors are concerned. Emphasis is given mainly to the information to be provided to the client, the efficient determination of the target market and the distribution of the investment products accordingly, the suitability and appropriateness assessment of clients and best practices when executing client orders.

 

While the objectives of the compliance function as well as the key principles underpinning the regulatory requirements have remained unchanged, the obligations have been further strengthened, broadened and detailed under MiFID II.

 

 

Training Objectives

 

  • to present the investor protection rules according to MiFID II focusing on the most important updates, such as the recent ESMA Guidelines on certain aspects of the MiFID II compliance function requirements, the ESMA updates on investor protection under MiFID II
  • to analyse the practical implications of these requirements
  • to provide guidance concerning compliance with the new requirements
