MiFID week is finally here

There’s lots being written on MiFID this week as it’s MiFID implementation week – hurrah! – so I thought I’d try to summarise some of the key things being reported during the week.  Today, I thought it worth a very brief recap of the key MiFID milestones     February 1992: Maastricht Treaty signed by…

Turquoise announce technology and CEO

After the disappointing outcome over Plus Markets, various factions are coming out and poking fun at Turquoise.  Unlike BOAT, Turquoise has little to show for its efforts so far, and are still looking for a Chief Executive.  What happened? The big difference for me is that BOAT has strong partners led by the Markit team,…

Stirring BOAT’s waters

I am regularly hearing half-truths and inaccuracies to cause confusion and issue, and this is particularly true as the battle grows between the old and new exchanges, and the old and new players in the investment markets.  One example is BOAT, formerly Project Boat.

Banks accused of laundering

After yesterday’s news that Lloyds TSB and the Bank of Cyprus are accused of having "knowingly assisted" a money launderer, I do wonder whose job it is to police the financial markets for villains. Obviously, the banks will monitor fraudulent activity as they don’t want to lose money, but your basic drug baron, mafia godfather,…
