Course: MiFID II – Definitions

About the online training programme

The second version of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) sets out a large range of definitions, which are used in its provisions. In order to understand and comply with this piece of legislation, one has to familiarise with the definitions. This is why these definitions have been provided in the form of easy accessible movies. Professionals can master the content and/or consult the videos instantly in case of an ad hoc need. This way, a database is created meeting the desire to go over it once more and allowing for continuous professional development guaranteed.
