MiFID II Training
In February 2016 it was announced that the Markets in Financial Instrument Directive II (MiFID II) deadline would be delayed by one year. This MiFID II training course will let you understand your basic obligations and requirements from the new MiFID II regime. It also explains the impact on financial services by the regime and its wide-ranging effects across the European Union from increased market access to best execution.
Geography Covered: UK and Europe | Duration: 45 minutes
MiFID II was the European Union’s response to the commitments given during the G20 Pittsburgh Conference to strengthen oversight and regulation of the global financial markets following the financial crisis.
It was implemented on January 3, 2018 and introduces new requirements and obligations for the entire financial industry across Europe.
Industry experts agree that the challenge in implementing MiFID II originates from the sheer scale and invasive nature of the regulation. MiFID II has a significant impact on employees at all levels working in financial services in the UK and Europe, who must understand the changes and implement them in their daily work.
MiFID II for the Buy-side
This course is focused on the buy-side of your business and will help you understand your principal obligations under the MiFID ll regime. It will explain MiFID II’s impact on financial services and its wide-ranging effects across the European Union. Topics covered in the course include investor protection, market transparency and integrity, and governance.
MiFID II for the Sell-side
Sell-side refers to the part of the financial industry involved in the creation, promotion and sale of financial instruments. Sell-side individuals and firms work to create and service products made available to the buy side of the financial industry. Sell-side firms include investment banks, interdealer brokers and stock brokers.
MiFID II – Market Structure
MiFID II extended the transparency regime implemented within MiFID I to non-equity markets enabling new trading venues, better transparency and governance. This course focuses on trading venues (new and old) and their differences, new transparency requirements and trading obligations.
International Reach of MiFID II
This course explains what MiFID II is and why it is important, even outside of the European Union (EU). The course will provide an overview of how MiFID II affects trading, regulation and governance outside the EU (and the UK). This includes the regulatory changes MiFID II has introduced to the trading landscape globally. Topics covered include examples of international (non-EU) market participants and how they may be affected by the new MiFID II regime. The course will include a review of the most important requirements under MiFID II for financial firms, employees and clients. The earlier three courses in the MiFID II suite can provide further details, if required.
