MiFID II Reality Check

The Ipreo Blog has been following Europe’s forthcoming MiFID II Directive for some time now, with multiple posts detailing the ramifications of the regulation.

This time, we asked others to weigh in.

With just a few months to go before MiFID II is enacted, our Perception Analytics team reached out to our colleagues in the industry for their take on the regulation, and exactly how they see it impacting the landscape.

Ipreo held in-depth interviews with over 50 institutional investors across 13 countries and whose firms manage almost $1.5T in combined equity assets. The survey population of portfolio managers and analysts provided feedback on three key questions facing corporate issuers and their IR teams in anticipation of the MiFID II roll-out.

Those three questions were:

  • How will the research and corporate access landscape change as a result of MiFID II?
  • What are the potential impacts of MiFID II for the buy side?
  • What are expectations for issuers and their IR teams in a post-MiFID II environment?
