Day 1 - Tuesday 12th September 2017

3:10 PM Panel Discussion: Between a Global Code Of Conduct ‘rock’ and a MiFID II ‘hard place’ - How are traders approaching regulatory challenges to achieve best execution and a fully compliant trading desk?

  • How prepared is the industry for the new regulatory landscape? Are most firms aware of enhancements to best execution monitoring and how can you assess whether they are suitable and proportionate for your business model?

  • How are the Code Of Conduct Phase 2 recommendations being implemented, who monitors them and what are the ramifications if you do not follow them?

  • What do firms feel is missing from Phase 2, or unclear – and does it need to be made more stringent?

  • How is the global code going to look in 10 years time? Are we really changing the culture, and is it fit for purpose?

  • What must firms prioritise throughout 2017 to meet the January 2018 MiFID II deadline?

  • How can firms overcome operational and infrastructural challenges to remain profitable? Do you have a plan B to make a profitable business in the future?
