The themes are as follows:
New UK Money Markets Code of Best Practice
In conjunction with the Bank of England, this session will provide an overview of the new code of best practise that will apply to all UK market participants who are active in securities lending and repo markets. This session will cover the key provisions of the code and how they apply to our industry as well as considering the adherence process including how the code fits in within the Senior Managers Regime. As well as insights from some of the practioners who helped draft the code, the Bank of England will also join the session to provide additional background on the development of the code.
As our understanding of how MiFid II evolves, the touchpoints with our industry are increasing, this session is designed to provide delegates with an overview of the key parts of this regime that apply to our markets and how we are developing common standards or best practice to address the requirements of the directive where appropriate. With compliance under MiFid II required in 2018, this will be a key session for all industry participants.
