MIFID II; business opportunities hidden in regulation

Telstra is a leading provider of technology and telecommunications solutions.
Norton Rose Fulbright is a global law firm servicing financial institutions
Thomson Reuters is an information, data and technology company for the financial industry

MiFID II is probably the most disruptive regulatory initiative ever to hit the European Financial Markets, and its live date is now less than eight months away. Will you be ready?
 
Encompassing a much wider range of asset classes and instruments than the original MiFID, and impacting many more organizations, including buy-side firms and those headquartered outside of Europe, MiFID II will have a significant impact on market participants and will change the way that business is conducted.
 
How firms can adapt to this new regulatory landscape will form the cornerstone of this joint seminar by Telstra, Norton Rose Fulbright and Thomson Reuters. Their industry experts will give an overview and status update on MIFID II, not only from a compliance point of view, but more importantly explore what business opportunities lie hidden in the upcoming regulations.
 
In a morning session, Floortje Nagelkerke (Partner at Norton Rose Fulbright), Andy Mather (Financial Services and Emerging Technology at Telstra) and Ozan Tuzunalper (Market Development Manager, Enterprise & Risk at Thomson Reuters) will present and discuss the current status of MIFID II and how you can both comply and adapt. The session is followed by an informal lunch.
 
Short agenda:
 
09:00 - 09:30 - Registration & Coffee
09:30 - 10:00 - Floortje Nagelkerke, Norton Rose Fulbright (Opening & status update on MIFD II)
10:00 - 10:30 - Andy Mather, Telstra (Transforming business models due to regulatory challenges)
10:30 - 11:00 -  Ozan Tuzunalper, Thomson Reuters (Challenges and opportunities in data solutions)
