Free Webinar: Investor Protection and Cost Transparency under Article 24, MiFID II
MiFID II's financial market regulations go far beyond that of MiFID. There are a number of measures introduced under MiFID, one of which is the requirement for financial institutions and intermediaries to provide their investors with detailed information on costs and charges occurring over the course of their investments (Article 24). This information has to be provided before the investment—or 'ex-ante'—in order to call attention to initial, ongoing and exit costs, as well as afterwards—'ex-post'—to determine the influence these costs have on the return on the investment.
Hence, SDS is developing m:Cost, a software product for the support of MiFID II cost transparency with highly flexible configuration options. It is intended for calculating and documenting cost information and considers individual condition models as well as the need for standardised group-wide applications.
Join us for our online panel discussion and learn what industry experts think about the challenges occurring with MiFID II cost transparency:
- How does MiFID II cost-transparency influence the process of client advice?
- Do financial institutions have the ability to calculate all costs expected from the investment ex-ante?
- Are flat-fees a cost-effective alternative?
- Can the obligation for MiFID II cost transparency be turned into a competitive advantage?
