Banks, industry associations and lawyers have spoken exclusively to Practice Insight on their best-efforts solution to Mifid II's trading obligation rules for packaged transactions which are characteristically incredibly complex. The lack of clarity has created a range of risk-based bespoke solutions rather than an industry-wide approach.

And with the General Data Protection Regulation's implementation date rapidly looming, firms explain how they are planning to manage their reams of Mifid II data to ensure it's compliant with the GDPR. Again, industry-wide consensus would be beneficial.
