In 2007 the European Union first attempt to regulate the financial market saw the introduction of MiFID I the effect of which was a harmonised transaction reporting regime across Europe. In MiFID II, the European Commission takes the current objective of transaction reporting - the detection and investigation of potential market abuse – and expands it into supporting “market integrity”. MiFID II requires major implementation changes and a reassessment of existing business models. The original MiFID led to a major shift in the cash equity markets, and the MiFID II impact will be even more pronounced, changing how almost all of OTC products are priced, traded and reported.
The original MiFID Transaction Reporting provides a platform for European Market participants to gain an appreciation of changes introduced by MiFID II and get ahead of the forthcoming MiFIR Transaction Reporting through developing a reporting model to suit their business.
This intensive one-day course conducted by a City expert provides a deep dive look at MiFID and the key areas requiring change and consideration for firms as a result of MiFIR and MiFID II. Participants will be equipped to understand Market Structures, Investor Protection, Conduct of Business, Transaction Reporting, Systems Controls and Business Principles, Product Changes and Exchanges implemented under: MiFID, MiFID II/MiFIR.
There will be a test performed at the end of the course to check participants' knowledge.
