The implementation of the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid II) on Jan. 3, 2018 will introduce many new responsibilities and obligations for market participants. A panel of experienced industry professionals share their insights on the impact these will have on trade surveillance.
Key topics discussed include:
- Where Mifid II and the Market Abuse Regulation overlap, and the different expectations from regulators for Mifid II
- For venues ranging from regulated markets to organized trading facilities, how will the new rules affect trade and communications surveillance, and what do participants need to know?
- How firms can implement a program of best practice ahead of January 2018, and what regulators will be expecting in the short term
- Where technology can assist with this, and whether emerging technologies—such as artificial intelligence and its various subsets, including machine learning and natural-language processing—play a part
- The operational cost and regulatory consequences of failing to comply with the requirements, and who is subject to them
- The steps firms must take to avoid these consequences
