Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) creates new data sources that could be used to identify business opportunities and gain competitive edge. The sources include Approved Publication Arrangements (APA) and ESMA’s Financial Instruments Reference Data System (FIRDS). The regulation also mandates use of standard data, disaggregated market data feeds, and ISINs for OTC derivatives. So much data, but what to do with it? The webinar will review data sources created by MiFID II, detail how they – along with other required data – can be maximised for business benefit, and question whether the new sources will change the pecking order in financial trading.
