MiFID II, the European Union’s version of Dodd-Frank, has capital markets professionals and their internal compliance colleagues scrambling to position themselves on the right side of this far-reaching and comprehensive regulation.

Why should a U.S.-based corporate finance officer or risk manager care about a massive new regulatory framework across the Atlantic?
