Course Overview – Introduction

The Product Governance regime came into effect on the 3rd of January 2018 as part of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation, known as MiFID II. The new regime aims to ensure that firm’s act in a client’s best interests, including funds and related management services, to end clients.

The Product Governance regime ensures that when a firm manufactures or distributes regulated financial services and products, it has arrangements in place to understand the products and only sold to investors and clients for which they are likely to be deemed suitable. The requirements apply to “services” as well as “products”, for all client types and to all distributors in the sales chain.

This seminar will provide delegates with an overview of the regulatory requirements and assess what these requirements practically mean for firms.

This course will cover the following:

  • Clarify fundamental regulatory principles that firms should review concerning the product governance framework, including governance; management oversight; roles & responsibilities; and process.
