We held a conference on 18 September 2014 that focused on MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) and outlined some of the changes in the EU directive that we expect will impact investments firms.

The conference was also an opportunity for us to discuss MiFID II with firms, understand the challenges they are facing or are likely to face, and talk about some of the remaining Level 2 policy questions detail in the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) consultation.

The new measures in MiFID II will be implemented on 3 January 2017 and will affect trading venues, investment firms and investors.

David Lawton, our director of markets, and Maggie Craig, our acting head of savings and investments, talked about the main changes and considerations for firms.
