MiFID dictates a hard landing for research
Hard landing for soft dollar
MIFID II puts an end to bundled research; sell-side broker dealers and banks will have to separate out research: as a separate legal entity or with definite financial obligations for clients to buy research, irrespective of their trading commitments. How will this affect the way that market data is sold?
