Introduction to MiFID II

MIFID II


Description

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) is the EU legislation that regulates firms that provide services to clients linked to ‘financial instruments’ (shares, bonds, units in collective investment schemes and derivatives), and the venues where these instruments are traded.

Firms will need to start planning and implementing for the MiFID II changes ahead of the deadline in January 2018. The impact to firms and brokers will be significant.

This course provides practical insight of the impact the new guidelines will have on firms. Areas covered include the key components of MiFID
II:

♣ Investor Protection
♣ Product Governance
♣ Best Execution & Trading
♣ Market Access & Structure
♣ Pre & Post Trade Transparency
♣ Data & Reporting

The course also provides insight into key delivery challenges and proposed programme structure to deliver compliance. This is based on practical, industry experience gained by the course writers.
