About the training
This intermediate to advanced level training programme will provide attendees with comprehensive training in all the latest updated Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) regulatory, risk, compliance and implementation issues affecting financial services firms in the European Union (EU). Attendees will be guided in detail through the latest MiFID II and Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) operational frameworks, and will be provided with a critical and explanatory review of the latest draft Level 2 texts published by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). The training programme will provide extensive guidance on the new MiFID II provisions affecting over-the-counter (OTC) and commodity derivatives trading, algorithmic trading, and dark trades and dark pools. The programme can be specifically tailored to meet a company's training needs by allowing companies to choose from a diverse range of 10 Modules covering MiFID II operational frameworks. A company can opt for either a 1 day (4 Modules) or a 2 day (8 Modules) training programme.
Attendees will be updated on MiFID II business strategies for financial services firms (e.g., minimising operational losses on Return on Equity, changing strategic business directions, minimising the MiFID II negative impact on future profitability); identifying new post-MiFID II ‘hot’ target markets; and EU market capitalisations strategies (high negative impact on cost-income ratios, Third-Country Firm passporting, SME growth markets).
Attendees will be comprehensively instructed on all the major changes ushered in by the MiFID II framework, including market structure, trade and transaction reporting, position limits and reporting, algorithmic trading, dark pools, third country frameworks, organisational requirements, investor protection, and compliance technologies.
Attendees will be updated with the latest and most relevant MiFID II regulatory issues and ESMA technical standards affecting financial services firms in the EU, as well as insights into how to optimise and leverage MiFID II regulatory compliance frameworks.
Attendees will learn how MiFID II will affect financial services firms from legal, financial, operational, technological and strategic perspectives.
