Seminar Overview

The practical guide to prepare the Annual Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) Report Course has been developed by the Risk & Compliance Director, Partner at SALVUS Funds, Evdokia Pitsillidou. This course aims to educate professionals on preparing the Compliance Annual Report, ensuring alignment with MiFID regulatory standards. It provides detailed information on the report’s specific features, required content, and areas inspected by the Compliance Function throughout the year 2023. The Annual MiFID Report represents a reporting obligation for regulated entities licensed to provide investment and crypto-asset services, examining matters of compliance with the MiFID framework. Addressing this requirement, the course also discusses the latest guidelines issued by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) on certain aspects of the compliance function, including the Annual MiFID Report. This learning course has been designed to enrich the knowledge and expertise of professionals holding key positions within Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF). Moreover, it can be valuable for lawyers, accountants, and
internal auditors working along with CIF regulated entities. Professionals undertaking this course will acquire the necessary information and skills to develop a comprehensive and well-structured Annual MiFID Report. The course dives deep into the inspection areas to be examined within the report for all business units and functions involved with the provision of services. Additionally, it serves as a useful source of information for members of the Board of Directors, facilitating their review and approval of the report, while offering Compliance Officers reporting tips to follow. Finally, the course equips participants with an overview of each circular issued by CySEC, relevant to the provision of investment and crypto-asset se rvices to be utilised for the completion of all annual reporting obligations.
