When MiFID II comes into place on 3 January 2018, it will be amongst the broadest of financial industry legislations. The scale of these regulatory obligations provides significant challenges to asset managers and to their I.T. and data management systems, complicating the already heavy compliance burden they face. The challenge will be greatest for those firms that are captured by MiFID II in its entirety.

The scope of the legislation will force investment managers to think extremely carefully about the solutions that are available to them and they must choose a compatible vendor that understands the complexities of their operations.
