Capital Access Group has been at the head of the debate on the upcoming MiFID II regulation and its effects on the provision of research and corporate access.

Because we have no access to trade in financial instruments and CAG's services cannot be viewed as inducements, CAG has concluded that we fall outside the scope of MiFID II. We explain more in a press release here and discuss further in a blog post here.

In November we published our Q3 Investor Survey report, MiFID II, Corporate Access & the "Broker Exemption" as well as an accompanying press release and blog: The "Broker Exemption": An Inconvenient Question.

In October we produced our report, MiFID II – Equity Research & Corporate Access – “More or Less?” the findings of which have been discussed in the national and specialist press.
