July 13, 2015

MiFID tool

The European Commission adopted new legislation that will overhaul the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). It seeks to address rapid changes in both market structure and technology that could affect the smooth and efficient functioning of EU financial markets.

Revising MiFID is an essential part of ongoing structural reforms in the aftermath of the financial crisis. These reforms are aimed at establishing a safer, sounder, more transparent, and more responsible financial system that works for the economy and society as a whole.

Investment firms and banks providing investment services must comply with MiFID II and MiFIR as of January 2017.

The GAP assessment tool developed by Berkeley Bridge and Totti Finance allows you to keep track of the latest changes in the legislation and the impact of these changes on your organization. The Berkeley Bridge GAP assessment tool is an online knowledge-based tool that uses decision trees to simplify the process of assessing legal requirements.

By using this tool you are able to limit your efforts to those sections of the legislation that are relevant to your organization and disregard the sections that do not apply.
