About the Whitepaper
The MiFID II directive has been debated and discussed in the financial services industry in recent years. Building on its predecessor, MiFID I, MiFID II heavily focuses on data, requiring more extensive volumes of data points. More specifically, it requires 50 more fields in transaction reporting than MiFID I.
With this, financial institutions must double down on their data collection efforts more than ever. To meet their transaction reporting obligations, they need to understand their data, analyze and report them, then make strategic decisions. Unfortunately, one leading challenge companies face is ensuring the completeness and accuracy of their data in reports.
Even more, Brexit has raised many questions about how regulatory requirements will change, particularly for banks operating in the UK. So to address these concerns, we invited a panel to share their insights on MiFID II and discussed the following key points:
- Controls Needed for MiFID II Transactions
- Achieving a 100% STP Rate
- Harnessing Latest Technologies for Regulatory Requirements
- Regulatory Implications of Brexit
- Consolidating Reporting Requirements for Global Consistency
- Looking Towards the Future of a Post-Brexit Environment
