Webinar: The Fall-out of MiFID II & How it Impacts You

Free to Member Webinar

On January 3, 2018, the European Union implemented its revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) to facilitate transparency. MiFID II is focused on unbundling fees, which is having a significant impact on how trades are made and with whom; where research is being distributed and at what cost; and how the buy-side are gaining access to company executives. This well-rounded panel will discuss the impact of the new MiFID II rules from all sides and help IROs prepare for the industry shakeout. This webcast is eligible for 2 CEUs.
