Firm News | October 23, 2017

Financial Services Partner Nathaniel Lalone was featured in a Bloomberg Markets article on the little-talked about requirement in the upcoming Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) that traders must provide client identification data on every trading venue they participate in. Nate stated, "In most of the conversations that we have had recently, someone has brought up the hassle of supplying personal-identification data. And some countries have rules that make it harder to pass on this information. South Korea is very, very strict." ("Trade in Europe? Be Prepared to Hand Over Your Passport Number," October 19, 2017)
