Event Details


Unbundling of brokerage commissions and its impact on sell-side research has gained urgent attention over the last few months.  As a sell-side service provider, is your business prepared to confront this challenge?

The European Commission recently issued a draft of pending regulation regarding asset manager payments for third-party investment research.  While this draft revealed some flexibility on getting client approval, there was no change in the language banning the use of client commissions to pay for sell-side and independent research. Though there is some chance for further revisions in the final rules, most analysts believe the new MiFID II regulations will completely sever the links between research and trading commissions.

How does this dramatic change impact sell-side and independent investment research service providers? 
Join your peers and attend this panel discussion of research industry experts to better understand how these regulations will impact you, your firm, and the industry.
