Spitz & Poulle and Société Générale CIB co-hosted a MIFID II – PRIIPS session on 19 January 2016 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Paris

The seminar had over 50 attendees from the French financial and banking industry, principally financial advisors who were keen to understand the implications of the MIFID II & PRIIPS directives on their activities.

The workshop focused on issues such as (i) product governance, (ii) independent and non-independent financial advice and their associated remunerations, and (iii) the key information document (KID) covering not only funds but also other ’packaged’ investment products offered by banks or insurance companies (see agenda here).

Speakers included Arut Kannan from our firm, Bertrand de Saint Mars, Secretary General of AMAFI and Carlo Comporti, former Secretary General of ESMA.
