STA Open Call: MiFID II and the North American Manager & BD

*Please note that content covered on this Open Call is specifically geared towards North American broker dealers and small to mid-size asset managers (as defined by <$50bln aum).*The unbundling of research and execution requirements under MiFID II are less than a year away from being implemented. This event with its competitive and regulatory effects, is likely to impact asset managers in North America and not just those in Europe.

Please join us as we review the requirements for European asset managers and discuss the likely impact on North American asset managers and their expectations from broker dealers in such areas as; payment for research, best execution and transparency. Additionally, what role, if any does the SEC have in creating a MiFID II reporting regime in the US will be covered.

Trading Multi-Asset Classes in a Complex World 

Cost pressures on both sides of the street are impacting the nature of trading.  Over the past couple of years, with the rise of global macro and cross asset risk premia strategies the buy-side has started transition to a more centralized, multi-functional desk trading.

Has the buy-side gone too far too fast?
Is the future of trading a larger desk of narrowly focused specialists or a smaller desk of generalists with a broader focus?
Is there a cost to any of this centralization and multi-functional trading?
