While the impact of Mifid II remains to be seen, some commentators estimate the research industry in Europe could shrink by a third, with some brokers pulling back from full coverage.
IROs will likely need to deal with potential changes in research coverage, affecting how investment cases are disseminated and debated among key institutional stakeholders. Some also believe the regulation could affect the provision of corporate access services.

Participants will hear:
• Background and relevant timelines for this regulation
• The expected impact of Mifid II on equity research
