DMS is pleased to announce the establishment of a dedicated MiFID II solutions suite. The acquisition of a 10 year MiFID-authorized entity, along with a strong and experienced team, has enabled DMS to leverage its regulatory DNA to provide bespoke solutions to asset managers. DMS continues to demonstrate its market and thought-leadership at a time when the investment community faces increasing challenges.
The DMS MiFID team is overseen by DMS Executive Director John Wallace and led in Dublin by Jason Poonoosamy, who commented: “The addition of MiFID services to DMS’s European footprint is a natural way to grow our service offering. The need for this service in investment regulation is driven by client demand, which has been fuelled by MiFID II and a need for post-Brexit MiFID-compliant solutions. Recent events have created a need to provide investor certainty and this broadened service offering provides exactly that, through various mechanisms including portfolio management, risk management and trade execution.”
