The European Commission recently issued a draft of pending regulation regarding asset manager payments for third-party investment research. While this draft revealed some flexibility on getting client approval, there was no change in the language banning the use of client commissions to pay for sell-side and independent research. Though there is some chance for further revisions in the final rules, most analysts believe the new MiFID II regulations will completely sever the links between research and trading commissions. The big question is how will this change impact your business?
On June 30th, Integrity Research, and investment technology firm ANALEC, will co-sponsor a unique panel discussion featuring four experts on the research industry to discuss the likely outcome of the MiFID II regulation; how this new regulation is likely to impact the sell-side, buy-side and independent research industries; the unintended consequences of this regulation; and what are the next steps for financial services and investment industry executives.
