MiFID II Workshop for Funds Course Summary:
Are you still miffed about MiFID II, much ado about nothing?
Now four months on since go live and many funds are still wondering whether they did enough to prepare and more importantly what else they still need to be focusing on. So, forget about disbanding those working groups, project teams and SMEs and returning to business as usual, MiFID II is the new BAU!
Much has been done to prepare for MiFID II but much is still left to do. Firms must continue to refine, systematise and focus on how MiFID II can help you position many of the requirements with your clients. Let’s not forget that among the regulatory melee much is positive for your clients, think cost and charges, increased transparency and unbundling. Whilst it will take time to fully implement, these changes are fundamental to improving and developing your ongoing client relationships.
