Forthcoming changes to regulation governing the provision and receipt of research are among the most influential aspects of MiFID II in shaping the financial markets landscape.

With the 03 January 2018 MiFID II go live date fast approaching, significant challenges remain for the implementation of the new requirements.

IA and AFME held a joint seminar to unpack the new requirements and discuss approaches to implementation.

Topics included:

  • extraterritoriality issues
  • operational challenges for the interaction between buyside and sellside on the RPA
  • scope and exemptions from a legal perspective
  • possible implications for the future of research
