Sell-side Capital Markets: Preparing for MiFID II

Recently, the European Commission revised legislation that regulates firms who provide services to clients linked to financial instruments, including shares, bonds and derivatives. Known as Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2 (MiFID 2), the regulations represent a widespread change for the financial industry. The primary intent of MiFID 2 is to reduce systemic risk and to ultimately guarantee more robust investor protection.

Brokers and investment professionals must change the way they communicate and interact with investors and re-examine how they operate in different markets.  Ultimately, MiFID 2 means that there will be a far more competitive environment for analysts to navigate.

Client Instant Access’ telephony tools along with Singletrack’s CRM platform provides powerful and intuitive solutions to these changes. The integrated Click to Dial feature inside Singletrack allows financial firms to execute efficient client outreach. Click to Dial ensures that the analyst will make contact with the investor, either by speaking to them when they pick up or by leaving a prerecorded voice message with an option to add a personal message.

Since 1997, Client Instant Access has worked with some of the most prominent banks on Wall Street. It is now poised to attract some of the most prominent European banks.
