Why MIFID 2 is an opportunity for fund managers

Now that it's live, MIFID 2 is making headlines in the world press, framed as a punishment for past misdemeanors and the catalyst for a new Big Brother-style regime in the asset management industry. But to data analytics fans, MIFID 2 is also a massive opportunity. Starting in Europe, but inevitably spreading to global firms located in other jurisdictions, asset managers are being forced to collect detailed data about past investment decisions that - if used proactively - can be utilized to make measurably better ones, in the future.

The proven performance improvement this generates is a win-win for both fund manager and the end investor.
