With many organisations misunderstanding the implications of MiFID on the capital markets industry as a whole and more specifically on their own firm, developing a better understanding of this significant piece of regulation has become vitally important.

Focusing on the three major elements embedded into the directive you will gain important insights into how the key aspects of this compulsory regulatory change affect you, these are:
  • Multilateral trading facilities
  • Internalisation
  • Best execution
Providing you with a single source of information on the newly issued regulation, this book includes its practicalities and a review of the potential impact on the industry. You will be given a practical understanding of the directive’s impact on investment firms and develop a vision of the broader changes the directive will generate amongst industry players.

Bringing together the viewpoints of both academics and practitioners, possible ways forward are suggested and your understanding of how the industry will evolve over time will be increased. You are provided an exclusive insight into the tools and techniques that you can use to support these new regulatory requirements.

This invaluable reference and guide will serve as essential reading material for you and should be recommended reading for investment firms representing the entire capital markets value chain, from exchanges and new alternative trading systems, intermediaries, money managers and end investors

  • The Development of Multilateral Trading Facilities and ECNs
