Neil Robson Quoted on MiFID Delay

Firm News | December 31, 2015

Financial Services partner Neil Robson was quoted in Futures & Options World regarding the European Commission's November announcement delaying the implementation of MiFID II by one year for technical reasons. Neil noted that the delay seems to acknowledge the large scope of work required of the financial services industry. Neil indicated that more than just a delay is needed, stating, "The market needs clarifications on what it is working toward. Dates, inclusions, exemptions and scope are all key and at the moment there is a lot of market frustration over the lack of details." ("Market Urges Caution Over MiFID Delay," Fourth Quarter, 2015).
