November 4: Webcast - MiFID II - Impact on Investment Managers

The EU’s new Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), due to come into effect in 2017, will bring major regulatory changes to the EU financial markets. We would like to invite you to join our webinar which will provide an overview of the new MiFID II regulation, with a particular focus on areas that will most directly affect US investment advisors and managers.
MiFID II will extend the instruments and services that are regulated and change how products are marketed and the consequences of the changes are likely to be extensive and as yet remain unclear.
This webinar will focus on a number of key areas including:
  • Dealing commission
  • Governance requirements
  • Changes to transaction reporting requirements
  • Disclosure requirements including algorithmic trading and aggregate costs
  • New telephone call tapping rules
  • Investor protection, independence, costs and charges, suitability and appropriateness; best execution
  • Reverse solicitation
  • Responsibilities of manufacturers and distributors
  • A look at the potential practical fallout from these new rules
