Asset Control provides a member update to the London chapter.
Martijn Groot, Vice President of Product Strategy and Management at Asset Control, will present a company update at the annual briefing in London.
Additional topics to be discussed:
Regulation - what's in store for 2019: MIFID II done? GDPR hovering somewhat ominously and FRTB way off. Can we all relax and put our feet up? Brexit cant be that much of a problem can it? Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters between them might have some idea of what is going on. In this informal conversation Mark and John aim to enlighten us.
Research - MIFID II, One Year on: From Asset Allocator to Investment Manager to Sell Side Bank, MIFID II has dramatically impacted the research landscape and the way these firms do business. One year on from MIFID II go-live how have these different market segments adapted to the new regulation? And what does it mean for the Research technology landscape?
Research - a very different world since unbundling: Choice presents itself post-MIFID II; but choice often equates to complexity. There is a new landscape for Research in Europe post-unbundling. The big bulge bracket firms (aka the "Waterfront Providers") ramp up and need to persuade their consumers to pay hard dollars. A new breed of boutique/specialist providers have emerged, alongside aggregators and solution providers. It all sounds vibrant and exciting but big administration headaches loom large. At this stage knowledge, understanding, and some form of cooperation look like the order of the day.
