We have been at the forefront of analysing the impact of Brexit on EU and UK legislation and regulation and the financial services industry.
The post-Brexit implementation of MiFID II in the UK will be a complicated network of primary and secondary legislation, regulatory rules and guidance and industry standards.
We are working with clients in the UK, EU and internationally on what the Brexit consequences are for them in relation to MiFID II compliance, including the complex interaction between the post-Brexit EU27 and UK MiFID requirements.
Our following Insights summarise some of the key points to note on Brexit and MiFID II.
