MiFID II training course
MiFID II Training
Geography Covered: UK and Europe | Duration: 45 minutes
In February 2016 it was announced that the Markets in Financial Instrument Directive II (MiFID II) deadline would be delayed by one year. This MiFID II training course will let you understand your basic obligations and requirements from the new MiFID ll regime. It also explains the impact on financial services by the regime and its wide-ranging effects across the European Union from increased market access to best execution.
This delay in MiFID II implementation was welcomed at the time, adjusting to the new MiFID II regulation had already caused tremendous efforts to both buy-side and sell side to ensure they were able to comply. A proper MiFID II training course would help to affirm this compliance.
Industry experts agree that the challenges of implementing MiFID II originate from the sheer scale and invasive nature which requires substantial changes to several areas of any business. Besides the challenge of understanding MiFID II’s technical and organizational impact, the importance of ensuring that an organizations buy-side and sell-side employees understand their responsibilities, the level of change required, and how it affects their daily work, is a highlight that is reflected in our MiFID II training course.
The available versions for this course include:
