WHO’S NOT READY FOR MiFID II? – Publishing from the trading network has shown that only 6% of asset management firms they interviewed are prepared for MiFID II’s arrival in 2018. A third of them have outlined plans to make strategic changes to trading concentration on the uses of technology to execute the best trades. Rebecca Healey, Head of EMEA Market Structure for Liquidnet, said “Best execution no longer means a mere ‘look back and check’ on the outcome of an individual order. It is now the creation and implementation of a process that enables the trader to be in possession of as much valuable information as possible, throughout the life cycle of a trade.” #SpartanInternational
