Stephen Hanks, head of market policy at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will deliver the keynote address at The TRADE’s MiFIDII: Check In event on 28 February.

Hanks has spent over a decade with the UK regulator and played a significant role in formulating the FCA’s strategy of handling the new regulatory regime, as well as working on the original negotiations for MiFID while at HM Treasury prior to joining the UK watchdog in 2006.

Held at the prestigious Merchant Taylors’ Hall, a 14th-century guild hall in London, the MiFID II Check In event will feature a full day of off-the-record speakers, panels and fireside chats.

Experts will be dissecting how the industry has handled the initial regulatory changes of MiFID II and what needs to happen next as the shifting regulatory landscape brings new issues to light and provides opportunities for projects have previously taken a backseat to preparation efforts.

The MiFID Check In event follows on from The TRADE’s MiFID II Checklist conference held last October, where over 150 delegates comprised of heads of trading, chief executives of global brokers and exchange groups, and a host of industry experts gathered to debate the final preparations for the 3 January implementation date.
