Neil Robson, Financial Services partner, was featuring in a BBC News article regarding the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), its regulations and Brexit. Neil stated that the Financial Conduct Authority's commitment to implementation of MiFID II indicates how unlikely it would be to roll back regulations post Brexit. The continuity provides assurances to international traders about conducting business in London. In terms of market transparency, he noted that regulators will have a better view of what is happening in real time. "They'll be able to spot trends. They'll be able to use this technology to see exactly what is happening on the markets." Neil added that the speed at which technology changes may pose a challenge to MiFID going forward.
