HOW THE IFPR CAN IMPACT DIFFERENT INVESTMENT FIRMS
While conducting our assessment work, it became clear that different types of investment firms can be affected by the new regime in different ways and to varying degrees. Of course, all individual firms are impacted differently based on the type and volume of MiFID activities undertaken, but some clear trends emerged if we group firms according to the principal activities.
Whilst the results presented throughout this report are aggregated across the current prudential categories of the firms in our sample, the ‘heatmap’ below provides an additional view as to how common firm types can expect to be impacted by each area of the new regime.
The following report is broken down into the key areas of the IFPR. Each section of this report contains a line graph representing the impact to these different firm types, as shown in the above heatmap.
