How is the Industry Faring in a Post‑Mifid II World?

The revised Markets in Financial Information Directive (Mifid II) went into effect at the start of 2018 and, as with any significant regulation go-live, there were some hiccups. Three months later, there are still gaps that need to be filled – specifically in defining which firms are systematic internalisers and should therefore report trades.

The Panel

  • Peter Moss, CEO, SmartStream Reference Data Utility
  • David Bullen, Fixed-Income Capital Markets and eTrading Consultancy, Bullen Management
  • Liz Carter, Managing Director, Trade Processing and Clearing Europe, Tradeweb
  • Andrew Munro, Global Head of Fixed-Income Trading, Janus Henderson Investors
  • Moderator: Jamie Hyman, Editor, Inside Reference Data

The solutions to issues that have arisen since the introduction of Mifid II could be more complex than expected. For example, a simple application programming interface call to double-check whether a trade is reportable or whether a firm is covered by the services of a broker would be hugely valuable to many on the buy side.

In this webinar, a panel of experts discusses how the industry is faring in a post-Mifid II world and the options available to market participants to smooth out their trade reporting processes.

Key topics discussed include:

  • How managers can learn which brokers offer systematic internalising services – key to understanding which counterparties are responsible for reporting trades.
  • Initiatives under way that aim to ensure firms and approved publication arrangements report their trades correctly.
  • The Mifid II-related problems that remain, currently available solutions and new services that could come to market in the future.
