On 3 January 2018 MiFID II’s costs and charges disclosure was introduced. This asked firms for the first time to present all costs and charges associated with their investment services and activities to end investors.
Despite the disclosure requirements being directed at MIFIDs, investors are increasingly expecting all investment firms to report their costs and charges. As a result, AIFMs are indirectly affected by this new regulation, even though they are not part of the directive.
We have created an eBook to ensure both MIFIDs and AIFMs understand how the Costs and Charges regulation will impact their organisations and what they can do to keep on the right side of regulators and investors.
