The Financial Services Authority is launching a series of online courses to help investment firms understand the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive.
The first in the series of MiFID courses is already available and explains the context behind the implementation of MiFID and gives a broad overview of the key issues for investment firms, including smaller firms giving investment advice.
The course includes information on:
- Why, when and how MiFID is being introduced;
- How MiFID fits within the FSA’s move towards more principles-based regulation;
- The types of firms and investment activities which are within MiFID’s scope; and
- The areas of the FSA Handbook which are shaped by MiFID
The online course includes questions, interactive features, links to legislation and extra information and audio commentary.
It takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and costs £5.
