Why You Should Attend

Investor Protection under MiFID II

The MiFID II regulation can only be described as a mammoth task for investment firms. It is so big that regulators have acknowledged investment firms will struggle to meet this overly ambitious task and in turn have pushed the deadline back countless times. The rules are highly preive and detailed leaving investment firms no choice, but to roll up their sleeves, come to terms with the rules and finally implement.  This marcus evans conference will equip investment firms with a step-by-step guide of the investor protection rules, outlining some of the specific challenges investment firms are facing with some of the more challenging aspects and how these challenges can be overcome. The conference will address how to comply with product governance guidelines, independent advice and disclosure of inducements to achieve client transparency by the time of the 3rd January 2018 deadline.
