Webinar: A harmonised approach to data management for regulatory reporting and record keeping *NEW*

September 12th 2017
3 PM - 4 PM BST / 10 AM - 11 AM ET

Financial institutions acknowledge the need to harmonise their approach to data management for regulatory reporting and recognise the resulting benefits of increased efficiency, reduced costs and readiness for future regulation – but while the concept may be clear, the practicalities of implementing a harmonised approach can be challenging.

The webinar will detail a step-by-step approach to harmonising data management for regulatory reporting, identify commonalities across regulations, outline quick wins and discuss the potential extent and benefits of harmonisation.

Webinar: MiFID II soft-dollar provisions - how will unbundling affect payment for investment research? *NEW*

September 21st 2017
3 PM - 4 PM BST / 10 AM - 11 AM ET

While the US market continues to allow soft-dollar arrangements between broker-dealers and their asset management clients to pay for investment research, among other services, European MiFID II regulation has stricter rules about the practice. The EU directive, taking effect in 2018, requires investment research to be paid for by fund managers, albeit recoverable by raising fees, or from a client account designated for research costs. This means that managers can no longer bundle together research charges with other charges or apply commission sharing arrangements to cover research charges.

Webinar: Systematic internalisation regime under MiFID II - what's involved? what qualifies? *NEW*

September 26th 2017
3 PM - 4 PM BST / 10 AM - 11 AM ET

MiFID II expands the instruments that systematic internalisers (SIs) may handle and changes the pre-trade transparency requirements for trading bonds and derivatives through SIs. While SIs are technically counterparties, not trading venues, they will be allowed to process depositary receipts, certificates and exchange-traded funds, as well as bonds, derivatives, emissions allowances and structured finance products. Yet, under MiFID II’s related MiFIR provisions, SIs must make firm public quotes and disclose identification thresholds. The public quote provision, however, only applies to instruments that meet a liquidity threshold set by national authorities.

Webinar: Pre- & post-trade transparency: quote & trading reporting under MiFID II *NEW*

September 28th 2017
3 PM - 4 PM BST / 10 AM - 11 AM ET

MiFID II sets transparency requirements for pre- and post-trade disclosure of order details, along with transaction reporting that identifies reference and post-trade data. The directive’s related MiFIR regulation extends pre-transparency rules to apply to depository receipts, exchange-traded funds, certificates trading on a venue, bonds and structured products trading on a regulated market, and emission allowances and derivatives. The directive and regulation extend pre-trade transparency obligations to organized trading facilities, regulated markets and multi-lateral trading facilities; the rules also extend post-trade obligations to make price, volume and time of transactions available to all trading venues. As a result of the rules, traders will have to report transactions to the proper authorities by the end of the next working day.

MiFID II is a far-reaching regulatory directive, years in the works, but now just a few short months from taking effect on January 3. The European Union regulation will have global impact, in areas including unbundling payments for asset management research, allowing systematic internalizers latitude to handle more types of instruments, data management methods and the definition of best execution of trades. In addition, MiFID II tightens the transparency requirements for order detail disclosure and transaction reporting.

Webinar: Best practices for post-trade automation *NEW*

December 7th 2017
3 PM - 4 PM BST / 10 AM - 11 AM ET

Improving post-trade automation — or at least speeding up the process — has been a long-running crusade for the industry, with talk about straight-through processing and reducing settlement cycles going back at least two decades to date. Some post-trade utilities have come and gone — what are the strengths and weaknesses of the current players? Is there room for innovation, as in the form of distributed ledger technology or other methods? Some may argue that settling trades fully and correctly requires a day or two, and cannot be done instantaneously. This webinar will explore these questions and consider how firms should approach post-trade automation given all the factors involved.
