European Financial Markets: Preparing to Profit From Change
Europe’s securities markets face regulatory challenges on an unprecedented scale. The rapidly looming revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and attendant Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation will upend long-standing practices across the trading lifecycle, all in the name of greater transparency. The UK’s decision to leave the European Union, as well as new political administrations across the globe, will also significantly impact the financial services industry. Changes to business models are inevitable and there is a growing realization that collaboration with technology specialists can help institutions meet these challenges, by reducing costs and providing competitive advantages over rivals.
This TABB Group report, European Financial Markets – Preparing to Profit From Change, examines the expected impact of the regulatory era of MiFID II, Brexit and Trump, and the new technologies that can help institutions meet these challenges head on.
