It’s raining regulations! Join us in London for a MiFID II Breakfast Symposium on July 4

On Tuesday, 4 July 2017, at EIGHT MOORGATE private members club in Central London, FinanceFeeds, along with TRAction FinTech, will be hosting a breakfast symposium, beginning at 8.30am until 10.30am, which will present the absolute intricacies of compliance with MiFID II, what will need to be done, and how to most effectively achieve it.

London’s Square Mile is the global epicenter of electronic trading, and has led the way for many years with regard to innovation, technological development and efficiency within the financial markets economy that spans the world.

During the course of the past year, a further facet has arisen, that being a facet that is equally as dependent on leading edge technology as the actual topography of the electronic trading business whether at interbank or retail level, that being the inauguration of new and complex regulatory structures that are specifically designed by trans-continental regulatory authorities to suit the highly digitized nature of electronic financial markets.

In Europe, preparation for MiFID II is a major milestone that all FX brokerages, executing venues and electronic trading firms will have to pass, requiring substantial preparation and keeping abreast with technological change.

On Tuesday, 4 July 2017, at EIGHT MOORGATE private members club in Central London, FinanceFeeds will be hosting a breakfast symposium, beginning at 8.30am until 10.30am, which will present the absolute intricacies of compliance with MiFID II, what will need to be done, and how to most effectively achieve it.

Come and join us for a detailed insight into MiFID II, along with specialist international trade reporting services consultancy for OTC derivatives TRAction FinTech whose senior executives will provide very comprehensive insight and important information.
