MiFID II Breakfast Briefing

BRUIN Financial, in association with the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) recently hosted a breakfast forum on MiFID II. This focused on its implications within the Investment Management space, and was facilitated by David Kennard (IBAM Consulting) and Oliver Robinson (AIMA).

David Kennard has been working in regulatory change and advising clients on how to maximise the benefit from their regulatory programme investments since 2003. He has a strong focus on data and governance architectures which can deliver significant business benefits for those that aim above the level of regulatory compliance.

Oliver Robinson engages with global policy experts and legislative officials on substantive legal and practical issues, including MIFID II and MIFIR. Since 1990, AIMA has been the key global representative of the hedge fund industry, with more than 1,400 member firms in over 50 countries, with members benefiting from their active influence in policy development, leadership in industry initiatives and outstanding reputation with regulators.

There was a fantastic turn out, including representatives from Legal & General Investment Management, JP Morgan Asset Management, Insight Investment and RBC Asset Management. Following an overview from David and Oliver, there was an open forum discussion covering:

  • Update on MIFID II / MIFIR
  • Key areas where firms will be affected
  • Potential issues around transaction reporting, governance and inducements
