This webinar took place at 2pm GMT on Wednesday 17th January.
As the European finance sector prepares for the implementation of MiFID II in January 2018, trade bodies, customer advocates, asset managers and distributors are trying to interpret what impact this new framework will have on the investment management and wealth management sector and how to respond.
The European Directive MiFID II is set to be even more radical in its quest for end customer value and suitability than the UK’s recent Retail Distribution Review (RDR). The RDR transformed fees, customer transparency and the fundamental business model between producer, distributor and the end customer. MiFID II takes that philosophy further and by setting a different template in each country, the planning of cross- border distribution is made even more complex for fund managers and distributors.
In this 30 minute webinar Julie Patterson, Head of Investment Management, Regulatory Change in the EMA FS Regulatory Centre of Excellence at KPMG, leads a discussion with three of Europe’s leading fund managers (Investec, Mediolanum, Invesco) to explore the implications and possible unintended consequences for product development and distribution and suggest a way forward for fund managers.
