A Finextra Dinner Club event in association with IBM
Finextra is hosting an exclusive executive-level dinner at the prestigious Walbrook Club in the heart of the City on 21 June, featuring presentations from prominent industry thought leaders, including Angela Teke of AFME. Guests will be welcomed by IBM's director of financial markets.
Financial markets in Europe are set to undergo a fundamental overhaul as the European Commission rolls out new rules and regulations covering every aspect of the trade lifecycle, from pre- and post-trade transparency, through to execution and clearing and settlement.
The updated guidance to the five-year-old Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) touches all corners of the financial markets, from the creation of new types of execution venue, through curbs on algorithmic trading strategies, dark pools and market data pricing, to the introduction of a consolidated tape, and clearing competition.
Join Finextra and IBM for the latest in our series of Finextra dinner debates. The dinner will provide excellent opportunities to network with industry peers in a relaxed setting and explore the impact of the MiFID II transformational reforms on market structure and practices. It will focus on:
- Industry preparedness and likely timeframes
- The business choices and strategic decisions facing capital markets participants
- Practical measures to ensure flexibility in planning and reduce compliance costs
Places at the dinner are reserved for executive level professionals and senior managers involved in regulation, risk, post-trade services, clearing and settlement, trading, operations and securities services at banks and financial services firms. Attendees are individually vetted to ensure a high level of networking opportunities.
