Sam Tyfield, a Partner in Vedder Price's London office and member of the firm's Investment Services and Finance & Transactions groups, was recently quoted in a Futures & Options World (FOW) article titled "Full Scope of Mifid RTS 'Not Yet Realised.'" The article details the expected challenges firms will face regarding trade reporting under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Mifid) II’s regulatory technical standards (RTS) when the standards go live January 1, 2017.
Mr. Tyfield comments, "There remain a lot of issues around the trade reporting, trading obligations and authorisation requirements, i.e. what is a liquid instrument, the difference in definitions between a CFD, equity swap, etc. and what counts as direct electronic access are important—it remains to be seen what scope particular requirements will cover."
