During this session the presenter will provide the following learning objectives:

  • Understand the key elements required under MiFIDII cost disclosure requirements
  • Investigate the difference between 'explicit' and 'implicit' cost and charges within the transaction costs
  • Understand the 'arrival price' methodology when calculating implicit costs
