The ACOI Prudential Regulation & Governance Working Group are delighted to announce this seminar, the third in a series of seminars assisting members in dealing with the challenges of MiFID II implementation. From 3rd of January 2018, MIFID II and MIFIR will apply within Member states.

This seminar will consider:

the new transaction reporting requirements introduced by MiFIR, which increases the scope of regulatory requirements on reporting entities. The requirements are complex. Updated processes, systems, procedures and governance arrangements are essential for the effective transition to the new obligations; and

the key aspects of the revised transparency regime under MiFID II. Areas covered will include pre-and post trade transparency, dark trading, waivers and the volume cap mechanism.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation giving attendees an opportunity to discuss the topics covered.
