The EU post-crisis change agenda is designed to meet the G20 objectives, generate higher standards in governance and conduct, strengthen market transparency and integrity and establish a safer financial system.

But what does compressing risk, reducing choice and increasing regulatory capital and costs mean for market operators, banks and non-banks and their customers? How will EMIR and MIFID II mpact market economics, location strategies, existing business lines, products and service offerings? Will the new requirements strengthen or obstruct EU targets to liberalize capital markets and energise economic growth and recovery?

This event will address these issues in the round and provide invaluable guidance to affected firms on how to turn MiFID II, EMIR and related FS regulation from being simply a regulatory burden into a source of competitive advantage by identifying new business opportunities. We are delighted to have Stephen Hanks, MiFID Coordination, FCA, deliver the Keynote Address.

The event is part of a two-year series of events on MiFID II, which City & Financial have been working on with Anthony Belchambers, Chair of Saxo Markets and Chairman of the Joint Trade Association Group, who is acting as programme adviser. The series has already featured four half-day workshops and two one-day conferences. These events were well-attended and highly rated by the participants. As with the previous events, this programme is also supported by Clifford Chance, which kindly provides the venue.

Among the topics that the expert speaker panel will address are the following:

  • The new financial marketplace: peering into the future
  • Product governance, research and costs transparency - how will MiFID II reshape the investment management and wealth management industries
  • Will customers be the winners in the post-MiFID II securities markets?
  • Business impact on brokers and banks
  • Transaction reporting - meeting the challenge of different, but overlapping reporting regimes
  • An economist's view of the new securities trading world post-MiFID II
  • Tackling the technological challenge of MiFID II and related FS regulation
  • How market infrastructure operators are adapting their business models
  • How Capital Markets Union will affect the post-MiFID II securities landscape
  • Compliance priorities in the new regulatory order

As you are no doubt aware, MiFID II will introduce the most significant changes to the conduct of financial services and the market environment since the commencement of the EU Commission's Financial Services Action Plan. It will affect all categories of dealing, broking, asset management and advisory services undertaken by banks, non-banks and other service providers and also their corporate, institutional and retail customers. It will also have a major impact on all primary and secondary financial and commodity markets, including regulated markets, NTFs and OTFs as well as clearing houses.

In line with previous events in the series, we have kept ticket prices low so that cost should not be an undue hurdle to attendance. Since demand for places is likely to be high, we recommend early booking in order to be certain of obtaining a place.
