Why do IFAs think Mifid II is an absolute pain?

In this week's podcast Ollie Smith is joined by The Lang Cat director of consulting Mike Barrett to look back at one year of Mifid II. Expect a terrible quiz, shocking revelations and even worse metaphors...

Why do IFAs think Mifid II is an absolute pain?

If you were paying attention to our Twitter feed this week you probably noticed we were doing some polling on Mifid II. Mifid II has turned one year of age, so we wanted to know exactly how IFAs have found implementing it.

It might come as no surprise that our readers did not exactly have glowing reviews. 

That is the subject of this week's podcast, which features The Lang Cat director of consulting and self-confessed Mifid nerd Mike Barrett, who takes us through the exact intricacies of what has gone well for the European directive, and what has not. 

This week's quiz is unusually complicated too, so if you get more points than Barrett did, we congratulate you! 

As ever, you can listen to the podcast above, but don't forget to subscribe on iTunes and, if you're feeling particularly generous, do leave us a nice review. Thanks for listening!

[A big shoutout also to our editing crew, who have ensured that this podcast starts in the correct style...]
