MiFID II is due to come into effect on 3 January 2018, and will change the rules for providing cross border investment services into the EU/EEA from so-called “third countries”. Post Brexit, firms have to plan on the worst case scenario namely that the UK will be treated as a third country in the same way as Switzerland, the US and others. This breakfast seminar will look at the options for firms doing (or continuing to do) business in Europe and how that may be affected by other changes within MiFID II.
We will have regulatory lawyers from CMS France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, as well as from McCann Fitzgerald in Ireland, discussing how they see the landscape changing and potential ways to navigate through the uncertainty. There will be plenty of time after the seminar to chat to any of the speakers about MiFID II and anything else more generally.
Delegates will also receive a copy of the forthcoming joint report by CMS and the Legatum Institute on ‘Brexit and the new EU/UK relationship in financial services’.
