Our CEO Donal Byrne attended The Trade’s pop-up MiFID II Event event in London, an event all focused on educating buy-side trading and compliance professionals about the upcoming MiFID II regulations.
Last Monday, May 9, our CEO Donal Byrne attended The Trade’s pop-up event in London, “MiFID II Best Execution, Are you Ready.” It was the first in a series of related events taking place across Europe, all focused on educating buy-side trading and compliance professionals about the upcoming MiFID II regulations.
Donal participated on a panel titled “FinTech- A helping hand,” where he was joined by John Bakie, Head of Digital for The Trade, Darren Toulson, Head of Research for IFS, and James Thompson, a consultant for Smarsh. The four discussed how disruptive technology can best assist with MiFID II compliance, providing first-hand examples for firms who are struggling with these requirements.
Donal was excited to participate in the panel and to have the opportunity to lend his expertise to a conversation with other financial professionals who are proactively thinking about MiFID II.
MiFID II is an important topic for our customers, and we have discussed it multiple times. In addition to releasing a MiFID II solution aimed at making compliance as easy as possible, we’ve done some deep thinking on our approach.
