MiFID II

January 18, 2017

A webcast presentation held on January 18, 2017 by Michael Mayhew as part of the CMT Association’s Educational Web Series.

The CMT Association invites you to a global webcast discussion with Michael Mayhew of Integrity Research, providing meaningful insights on the new world order and how best to position your business.

The advent of “unbundling” commissions and MiFID II compliance in Europe will change the client service model (from broker-dealers to asset managers) forever. Full service brokers as well as asset managers will have to evolve to remain competitive and viable. Research and related services from broker-dealers to asset managers have to be “priced” explicitly. Additionally, asset managers have to be more accountable to their asset owners when it comes to paying brokers for their services. Consequently, the use of data and related analytics as part of the client service value chain is likely to grow in its importance. Intelligent technology solutions to manage the evolving client relationships will be integral to long-run commercial sustainability for broker-dealers, while helping with the accountability requests of the buy-side.
