The conference will first explore the interplay between data privacy rights and financial innovation. It will then discuss the potential benefits, risks and challenges for robo-advisors and the capacity to progress from niche markets to the mainstream. The debate will finally explore how policy-makers could further help financial firms better protect critical data against increasingly complex cyber-attacks.

All investment firms are currently subject to the prudential requirements designed for banks. The European Commission’s proposal for a prudential framework devoted exclusively to investment firms will alter this regime. While the systemically important investment firms remain under the same prudential rules applicable to banks, smaller investment firms will be subject to less stringent requirements. The overarching objectives of the prudential framework are to ensure that the firms have sufficient funds to remain financially viable and avoid contagion to customers and the wider economy.

MiFID II (came into effect on 3 January 2018) is set to disrupt the production and distribution of investment research, impact execution services and ultimately the costs for investment firms and end-investors. Brokers have to establish a price for investment research separately from execution services. Asset management firms need to develop research budgets for all asset classes, and either pass the costs of research on to clients or absorb the costs themselves. Nonetheless, this will lead to new opportunities for investors to better compare price and quality across products and service levels.

With the aim of improving investor protection, MiFID II takes a firmer stance by imposing new/additional requirements in several areas, including dealings with eligible counterparties, suitability and appropriateness, inducements, conflicts of interest and cross-selling practices in the financial sector. The implementation of these requirements poses multiple challenges for both financial service providers and investors.
