Your Fast Track to Regulatory Compliance, 4 July 2017

With less than 200 days until MiFID II comes into force, market participants are in the process of implementing regulatory requirements that commentators say will be ‘the most significant transformation of the financial services industry, since the “Big Bang” in 1986.

 

Top of the agenda, research unbundling, is expected to have the most significant business and competitive impact. However, it is also an evolving area and many on the buy-side remain unprepared for the changes and unaware of the competitive opportunities. Pricing and valuing research, alongside establishing budgets, are the most difficult areas to address.

 

Join us, 4 July, at The Ritz London for an update on the regulatory requirements and some practical guidance on asset owner expectation, budget setting, pricing and valuing research. We will also be serving afternoon tea. 

Places are expected to sell out, so book your place today and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 4 July.
