Yanay Lehavi, EVP at PIMCO, to join interactive discussion on what buy side firms will need to do to prepare for MiFID II regulations
Boston, MA, June 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMP Consulting today announced an educational webinar on MiFID II regulation, titled, “MiFID II – US Asset Managers Brace for Impact.” The webinar, featuring Jane Stabile, President of IMP Consulting; Jon Gold, Managing Director of IMP Consulting; and Yanay Lehavi, EVP at PIMCO, will take place on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET. The webinar will include a presentation followed by a question-and-answer session.
“The original MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) impacted UK and European firms, primarily on the sell side. This time around, MiFID II casts a wider net, and has a much greater impact upon the buy side,” said Jane Stabile, President of IMP Consulting. “Many non-EU firms may think that they don’t have to worry, but you may be surprised to learn that your firm is likely to be affected.”
This webinar is suited for operations, traders and compliance professionals who are looking for a high-level overview of the key trading requirements, expected impact on order flows, and the implications for US Asset Managers. It will cover five major areas of MiFID II regulation, including: Investor Protection, Best Execution, Trading Transparency, Post-trade Reporting and Unbundling Research.
Additional topics of the webinar include:
- The degree to which MiFID II will impact US Asset Managers, depending upon how they conduct their business.
- The systems potentially impacted - from decision support tools, to trade OMS, and regulatory reporting.
- Key programs and policies impacted - from firm governance, to the interaction of internal compliance with other departments.
