AFME Members' Briefing call 2017 outlook with one year to go to MiFID II – Where are we now?

"MiFID II will bring about significant impact on banks' and brokers' strategic operating models. Whereas MiFID I was aimed at creating a single European market in equities trading, MiFID II is very much a response to the financial crisis. It aims to increase investor protection and reduce systemic risks, primarily by increasing market transparency" - Julian Allen-Ellis, Director, MiFID.

MiFID is arguably the largest and most impactful piece of legislation for the financial services industry in history and we are now under one year away from the implementation date. AFME's January Member Brieing call addresses some of the highly significant and challenging practical implications of the new rules for our industry and across Europe. Speakers include Julian Allen-Ellis, Director for MiFID and Pedro Pinto, Director for Advocacy at AFME.
