MiFID II Knowledge and Competence - how are you planning to meet the requirements?
The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) requires implementation by the 3rd of January 2018. As part of the Directive, firms with staff who provide investment advice or investment information to clients must demonstrate minimum standards of knowledge and competence.
Our lunchtime event provided you with information about the Knowledge and Competence requirements of MiFID II and the steps you should be taking to ensure your firm is compliant in time for the deadline.
Guest speakers from the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment and CFA UK discussed how qualifications from their portfolios map to the ESMA guidelines on Knowledge and Competence.
