The regulators have been clear in communicating the instruction that they expect best efforts to be made to comply with the fast approaching 3rd January 2018 deadline for MiFID II. Whilst an army of consultants have spent months explaining the challenges and interpreting the regulation, now is the time to move to the next phase if you have not already done so. For many wealth managers two years of work needs to be squeezed into the next six months. With such a tight deadline it is inevitable that choosing the right technology will be key to achieving the best outcome.

With MiFID II implementation high on financial firms’ agenda, there is going to be a major change in the way that trading communications are recorded and stored. Both mobile and electronic trading communications have increased significantly over the last few years, which is reflected in the new rules that extend the scope of communication recording and surveillance to include all types of interactions, including text, IM, email, mobile, and social media. This is an ever-growing challenge for financial firms who must capture data from all their regulated users involved in pre-, during and post-trade activities and include communications from far beyond the trader’s turret.
