We wanted to share with you 4 problems which have formed the programme at this year's Annual ETRC.
We hope that by joining the plethora of regulators and traders, you will overcome them!
1. Five letters: M-i-F-I-D
With less than a year away from implementation of MiFID II - the time is now to make sure you are confidently in scope.
Europe's largest renewable generator, Statkraft, will be going into detail on:
The specific implications on commodity traders
What the changes it brings to your structure as well as the trading environment
Compliance requirements implied by a license
Whether or not you need one in the first place
Day 1, 8 March 15:00 and 16:30 see programme >>
2. Not enough face-time with regulators
Yes, there are directives, documents, pamphlets and everything else in between - but in the midst of the daily job - there is nothing like speaking to a regulator in person.
With regulators from:
Attendees will enjoy updates - via talks and panel debates - on:
MiFID II, level 3 guidance
MAR - anti-abuse activities
Brexit - potential consequences
REMIT & EMIR - what are the plans to improve the quality of data?
Day 1, 8 March 09:50-13:00 see programme >>
3. I can learn at home - I want to know what my peers and competitors are doing
It's a fair point - in 2017, there has never been such an abundance of information online.
Know what isn't online? How DONG Energy, Wingas and a member of a European Exchange tie the MiFIDs; the CRDs; the EMIRs; the MARs etc; into one broader picture? Take part in this panel discussion for the definitive picture.
Day 2, 9 March 15:00 - see programme >>
4. Brexit - what exactly are the possible scenarios?
Yes, we all know that no-one knows precisely for certain the course of the world's most high-profile divorce, but wouldn't it be useful to have several projections based on "what if" scenarios?
Leaders from Gazprom, Centrica, Swisselectric and Axpo will be delving into all things:
Impacts on contracts between UK entities and EU counterparties
GBP vs USD - impacts on UK and EU firms
Collateral damage expected?
