Lee McCormack is Head of Strategy & Product Management at CloudMargin. We asked him three simple questions 1) Will the uncleared margin regulations be delayed? 2) Should Firms (who aren't compliant) Continue Trading? and 3) Is Collateral a Front Office Function?

Navigating the MiFID Maze
This webinar covers many topics including:
The status of firms outside the EU in "third countries" - does MiFID II or MAR apply at all?
How does the domicile of your counterparty influence your application of the rules, in combination with your own?
The fact that the domicile of the instrument you traded also changes the application of the rules
Why this affects Transaction Reporting under MiFID II
The relationship between Algorithmic Trading and MiFID II
The detection and reporting rules under MiFID II
The relevance of new trading venues such as Organised Trading Facilities (OTFs) and Systemic Internalisers (SIs)
