Coming Soon to a Market Near You: Pain Points and Impact of MiFID II/MiFIR

It has faced a few delays but the sequel to 2007’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) is set for implementation in January 2018 and its scale and scope should not be underestimated. For starters, it has been divided into two parts—a directive and a Europe-level regulation. Both MiFID II and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) were published in the European Union’s official journal in June 2014 and they extend the scope of requirements from equity and equity-like instruments to nearly every other asset class under the sun.

Aite Group research director Virginie O’Shea and analyst Spencer Mindlin discuss the main operational pain points and impacts of MiFID II/MiFIR, delving into such areas as:

  • Best ex beyond equities
  • The unbundling of research
  • The evolution of clearing
  • Trade and transaction reporting

This webinar is related to the Aite Group report, MiFID II and MiFIR: Keeping Up With the Moving Parts
