AKG Insight - In Brief

  • Publication of latest AKG research paper
  • AKG publishes With Profits Market Briefing
  • AKG With Profits Reports publication

AKG is pleased to announce the publication of its latest research paper, MiFID II Implementation – A Work in Progress, which is now available to download here, free of charge.

This AKG research paper seeks to analyse the initial impact and effectiveness of MiFID II since its recent introduction as a key component within the regulatory structure in the UK. AKG wanted to appraise this impact and effectiveness from a range of perspectives across the retail wealth management value chain. The delivery of this project has therefore been underpinned by market research exercises designed to gather feedback and thoughts from intermediary businesses, platform operators and DFMs.

The paper is designed to be educational, practical and constructive in its content and to broadly seek to address the following overarching areas:

  • Experience of MiFID II implementation
  • Impact of MiFID II on businesses since January 2018
  • Looking ahead at matters arising, further developments and any issues to be resolved.

This paper therefore follows this structure, with the addition of sub-sections looking at the specific issues for intermediary businesses, platform operators and DFMs as well as looking at findings from the quantitative and qualitative market research exercises in the round.

The paper is sponsored by Netwealth.


Following the publication of the MiFID II research paper AKG will also be participating in a webinar for advisers to discuss some of the key findings and themes from the paper.

The webinar - MiFID II Review - the journey so far and the road ahead - is being hosted and produced by Netwealth and will take place on Thursday 4th July at 12 to 12.45pm.

Interested parties can register for access to the webinar here.
