What we do

Reviewing your MiFID2 implementation effort – We will design a quality review approach together with you, focusing both on the MiFID2 topics to be included in the review as well as the characteristics of the review itself. We will review project documentation to isolate the key decisions taken during the project. Where needed, interviews with key personnel will be conducted to unearth the relevant details. A report with concrete, hands-on suggestions for improvement will be written, presented and validated.

Key programme activities

Scoping – Perform client intake, determine scope and problem statement for the MiFID2 quality review; ensuring an effective execution of the research and analyses phases.

Research – Review relevant project and business requirements documentation; including: scope assessment, impact/gap assessments, implementation plan(s) and project deliverables.

Analysis – Execute the analysis phase based on the business requirements gathered in the research phase.

Synthesize & Report – Wrap up of the preceding phases into the final report (incl. recommendations) to facilitate the discussion on the way forward.

Together with the client, we will design a risk-based approach to ensure the right combination of effort and confidence level. The illustration is an example, we prefer to set the approach up in such a way that it fits your organization perfectly
