​May 3rd, 2016​

LONDON – May 3, 2016 – NICE (NASDAQ: NICE) has announced that it is sponsoring a series of regulation and technology-focused ‘pop-up’ events to be held throughout Europe, organized by The Trade magazine. The special forums were designed for buy-side trading firms and their partners to discuss the strategies, systems and working practices necessary to comply with MiFID II as the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) prepares to deliver its final guidance and recommendations.

These conferences, called “MiFID II Best Execution: Are You Ready” will begin to roll out in London on May 9, to be followed up by similar events in Frankfurt (May10), Paris (May 17) and Stockholm (May 19). Attendees may visit the NICE area located in the sponsors’ section of the exhibition.

NICE, focused on educating the industry on the latest strategies and holistic surveillance technologies that support the new MiFID II & MAR regulations, will participate in a series of panel discussions to be conducted at each of the events titled, “MiFID II – The Regulatory Overview.” Tom Honeywell, Director of Communication Surveillance, will represent NICE at these discussions. Honeywell, a trading floor communication surveillance subject matter expert, has extensive experience introducing complex compliance solutions into the banking, technology, consulting and government sectors.

“The growing scale of trade volume, combined with the increasing complexity of global regulations, has created an escalating need for surveillance technology across trade and communications data,” said Cromwell Fraser, Vice President, Communications Compliance, NICE. “Firms need advanced surveillance technology if they expect to manage the sheer scale, speed, lines of communication, and trade information present today. A holistic and all-inclusive surveillance framework could also potentially help financial institutions save billions of dollars in fines and prevent reputational loss.”

Complimentary attendance for the events is available for buy-side trading and compliance professionals. by registering here. For those unable to attend the pop-up events, NICE is also hosting a webinar on the same topic on May 25. For registration information please click here.
