Sam Tyfield, a Partner in Vedder Price’s London office and a member of the firm’s Finance & Transactions and Investment Services groups, was recently quoted in the Financial Times article “Three Challenges Facing Investors Ahead of Mifid II.” The article highlights the three key obstacles that investors will need to face and accept with the impending implementation of the Mifid II regulation, a directive that is intended to create greater transparency into all markets. The three outstanding issues the article discusses are equivalence decisions, trading obligations, and systematic internalisers.
