Capital Markets

Trading and Broking

Since the financial crisis, the derivatives market has seen unprecedented regulatory reform to provide greater transparency, strengthen capital standards and develop market conduct. Brokers have had to adapt to major regulatory change such as MiFID II, EMIR and the CRD IV. This raft of new regulation sits alongside pre-existing regulation dealing with ICAAPs, best execution obligations and remuneration. Looking into the horizon, brokers are also having to deal with potential future regulatory reforms such as SMCR and EMIR 2.

Our expert team advise brokers across several asset classes and take pride in their knowledge of complex products such as derivatives. We have significant experience in this sector providing guidance on getting authorised and providing ongoing support.
