Having come into force in January 2018, the EU-initiated Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) will have a profound impact on the financial markets and the financial industry globally.
Despite still remaining levels of uncertainty, under-estimating its significance will be a mistake and may lead -yet again- to severe penalties and reputational damage for financial firms caught off guard.
Complying with the Directive and its Regulation cousin MiFIR will require a thorough review of business models, changes to corporate culture and staff conduct as well as large investments in IT infrastructure to meet reporting requirements. Consider this a call to action, the clock is ticking.
