With the deadline for MiFID II fast approaching, European banks are scrambling to make sure they have certain requirements in place.
Earlier this month, The Association of German Banks criticised the regulation, stating that German banks will have to cover the ?1bn of costs needed to set?up the technical infrastructure required for directive.
Michael Kemmer, the general manger of the association, said the new regulation undermines the trust between the customer and bank, and will create an information overload for bank customers.
