The Alacra Breakfast Club

Our next Breakfast Briefing will discuss:

MiFID2 – The Costs, Risks and Implication of Poor Data Quality

MiFID2 (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2), set to take effect in January 2018, is a far-reaching piece of legislation. It can affect a whole host of bank functions – from client services to regulatory reporting to IT and data management systems.

Please join us for a discussion focused on the Data Management Challenges of complying with the directive. We will cover topics such as:

  • What do I need to do to get my data quality and data linkages in good shape?
  • What data sources can I rely upon to ensure compliance?
  • How have regulators treated data management shortcomings in the past?
  • What are the regulatory, operational and business risks of not meeting the requirements by 2018?

Thursday 30th June 7:30am – 10am
1 Lombard Street, London, EC3V 9AA

Please RSVP to secure your place.

Chatham House rules apply and anything discussed at this networking event will not be used in any marketing material or repeated outside of these forums.
