The deadline for MiFID II is fast approaching.

It is now clear that procurement of investment research is among the most challenging operational, strategic and regulatory issues for asset managers. While MiFID II was drafted for Europe, its impact will be felt worldwide.

This radically new regulatory environment is coinciding with an unprecedented wave of technological innovation. All aspects of the conservative asset management industry are due for disruption.

In this 50-slide presentation, we explore the following topics:

  • The MiFID2 regulatory roadmap
  • Evaluating investment research
  • How to price research
  • Working with the new buy-side
  • What impacts to expect in 2018

You will learn more about:

  • Why value investment research?
