MiFID Briefing


Background

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) is now effective.  MiFID is the successor to the Investment Services Directive.  It substantially revised the Investment Services Directive and has established new European regulatory standards.

 

Implementation has required  major changes to the FSMA and the FSA Handbook.  The course focuses on key aspects of the Directive, the changes to the FSMA and the FSA Handbook and the practical issues and challenges to be managed by compliance executives and senior management.
