Dealing with MiFID II in a global regulatory framework

Clients, firms and exchanges that trade across borders are impacted to some extent by the regulations of the jurisdictions of the market where they trade and/or by the jurisdictions where their clients are based. MiFID II/MiFIR is no exception, its extraterritorial reach affects stakeholders outside of the EU. This session will discuss:

  • Impact of MiFID II on MiFID Authorised Firms trading abroad
  • Impact on non-EU firms trading in EU
  • Reach of MiFID on non-EU trading venues
  • Practical approaches

What will the equity trading landscape look like in 2018 and beyond?

  • As Exchanges and Liquidity Providers directly court the buy-side does this mean the inevitable dis-intermediation of the sell-side?
  • What new partnerships will form and how will liquidity interact between venues?
  • What will the rise of conditional order flow mean; is this a panacea or potential market structure problem?
  • What changes to workflow will need to be made for the buy-side to meet best execution requirements?
  • What role will technology and lower cost overheads play in selecting counterparts? 

Fixed Income

The extension of scope of MiFID II/MiFIR beyond shares will entail substantial changes in the way Fixed Income instruments are traded. Bond trading will be faced by huge changes. Transparency and data capture requirements will create challenges to voice trading, new execution venues will challenge the current settled models.

We shall discuss:

  • Where to find liquidity? What are liquidity concerns?
  • Is there a future for voice trading?
  • RFQ’s post MIFID II
  • How will Systematic Internaliser work for Fixed Income?

How FIX is Helping to Implement MiFID

Since the start of the 2015 FIX Trading Community have launched numerous new subcommittees / working groups looking at the practical changes that FIX will need to support MiFID. This session will provide all firms with an update on the issues and challenges that FIX is addressing to support the looming implementation of MiFID II.

This session will discuss:

  • How is new regulation driving innovation in post-trade? Where are firms focussing their efforts?
  • The impact of new technology on post-trade?
  • The importance that CSDR and SFTR has on continual improvement of post trade processes. Are firms paying these regulations enough attention?

Build or buy?          

In an era of compressing margins for market participants and increasing requirements for technological changes dictated by regulation and changes to the industry, the decision of building vs buying is becoming even more critical. During this session, we will explore:

  • How can a firm identify areas and services that can be outsourced to vendor’s vs point of focus for the firm to continue to build?
  • There are some instances where services are paid under unclear structures. How is it possible to bring more transparency to these structures?
  • What can be the issues associated to build everything from scratch? And those of buying?
  • What is an effective vendor selection policy?
  • Who takes responsibility for failure to meet regulations?

The Buy Side Perspectives by K&K Global Consulting (K&KGC) was created in January 2016 in a direct request from our 1100 senior, heads and global head of trading members to explore the challenges and changes facing buy side trading desks today, including regulation, trading technologies, relationships with brokers and trading venues, innovation and the impact of macro-economic events such as elections.

The Buy-Side Perspectives covers equities, fixed income and foreign exchange, and was designed to provide a centre point for the global buy-side, discussing the issues relevant to them and supporting it with the data and conclusions from K&KGC’s buy-side surveys and meetings with senior heads of trading in Europe, Asia and North America.

The publication is aimed at senior buy-side traders in all the locations K&KGC covers, including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Singapore, Hong Kong, New York and Boston.

The Buy-Side Perspectives is neutral and does not favour any particular brand over another; our approach is collaborative with the buy-side to tackle the issues that are most important for them. 

 

 

We need to talk about bonds. Liquidity has been sucked out of the credit markets by regulation. It can only be replaced by a structural change in the secondary market, or a change to the issuance model in the primary market. Neither is happening right now. Fixed income trading costs are opaque at best, so achieving best execution in the bond market seems an impossible task. Wedded to illiquidity, a lack of price transparency could threaten to impact issuers.

The DESK provides buy-side traders with precise detail on the macro-drivers, events and plans that are shaping liquidity and price discovery in fixed income markets. Published quarterly, The DESK delivers facts from the frontline of trading, opinion on the potential of new initiatives and support for fixed income desks across investment firms. Talking about bonds starts at The DESK.
