I am Reg Goslin Sales Director at Connect-it Communications. Following on from our pre-deadline date presentation, this is a mop up meeting for those that could not make it. An obvious reminder that the 3rd of January deadline will have passed so every call not compliant could cost you 15% of yoru turnover; that is EVERY call!
Is an hour of your time worth 15% of your turnover?
A free informative presentation for all Financial Advise Businesses.
The FCA have updated regulation for all firms that conduct investment business. They will therefore be affected by MiFID II, regardless of their current or future MiFID status. In essence, among other rules under the directive, all financial advisers giving advice over the telephone must record and securely store all telephone calls with clients or potential customers which may lead to a trade. Those calls must be securely stored for a period of 5 years. You will of course be aware that this must be implemented by 3rd January 2018.
We are targeting IFA’s to support them with the MiFID directive and will be holding a lunchtime solution event, here at the Innovation Centre Medway, on Wednesday 17th January at 12.30pm. The purpose of the event is not to take you through legislation, but to demonstrate to potential customers how Connect-it can help you to painlessly make the transition. You will also have an opportunity to meet with sector peers.
