MiFID Reporting Remains Center Stage

The EMSA recommendation of a one-year delay to MiFID compliance has done little to stem the ongoing flood of concern about trade reporting. While attendees at two key London conferences in December agreed that while project delays at their firms are likely, it was accepted that the regulatory programme would inevitably move forward.


The kid at the front of the conference

On October 8, 2015, I had the pleasure of being on the dais for a panel discussion on “Reporting Regulations & Derivatives” at the Derivatives World Congress, bright and early in Chicago the morning after the Cubs beat the Pirates to advance to the NL Division Series against the Cardinals.

Needless to say, all of the locals in attendance were bleary-eyed and/or hung over. Yet, we kept the audience awake and engaged.
