Colt participates in MiFID II industry panel

Preparing for MiFID II? Join us at the FISD General Meeting in New York.

Colt’s Julie Hutchinson will be participating in a panel entitled ‘MiFID II Implementation: In America and Across the Globe’ taking place on 15-Dec. Part of the FISD General Meeting, the event will take place at the Thomson Reuters New York offices.

The panel will focus on the impact of MiFID II on US firms and include representatives from Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and Deutsche Boerse AG. It will cover the effects of the disaggregation mandates taking effect, new requirements for data distribution, as well as the challenges and opportunities that a more expansive menu of data products will create for global consumer firms.
