As the European Commission readies its proposal for reforming the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (also known as “MiFID II”), financial professionals are left waiting to see how the new regulations will change the way that they do business. The reforms, which aim to increase transparency in the trading of stocks, bonds, and commodities, are also expected to have an effect on high-frequency trading and internal risk controls. More detailed coverage of the proposed changes and the way that some industry figures are reacting to them can be read at Reuters and Global Financial Strategy.
A panel discussion at the Fourth Annual CFA Insitute European Investment Conference will discuss MiFID II and some of its expected reforms, including proposed changes in secondary market structure and venue classifications. The session, moderated by Rhodri Preece, CFA, Director of Capital Markets Policy at CFA Institute, will draw on the expertise of Marcus Hooper of Pipeline Financial Group, Frédéric Romand of Generali Investments, and Jasper Jorritsma of the European Commission.
