MiFID II - The ongoing challenge

On the 3rd January 2018, MiFID II brought about seismic changes within the financial services industry, with key changes impacting:

  • Client Categorisation
  • Best Execution
  • Product Governance
  • Fee and commission transparency
  • Complaint Handling
  • Inducements
  • Transaction Reporting
  • Disclosure Requirements
  • Research
  • Suitability
  • Telephone Recording

The FCA has made it clear that compliance with MiFID II isn’t as simple as being a yes or no situation. Each firm must find its own solutions, structures, processes and assurances that they are compliant with the relevant requirements of the Directive and the FCA’s corresponding rules and expectations.

Compliance with MiFID II is an evolutionary journey, with regulatory guidelines, industry practices and lessons learnt all shaping the control framework and operational approach taken by firms.
