The Financial Services industry in Europe was facing the biggest shake-up of regulatory legislation for over a decade. The new MiFID II that came into effect by January 2018 would imply new far-reaching rules on Financial Institutions and Financial Advisory firms. The new rules were put in place to prevent market abuse, strengthen investor protection, increase transparency and re-establish trust from the consumers.

The regulation states recordings shall be made of all electronic communications relating to transactions or communications intended to result in transactions between the Financial Advisory firm and the consumer.

“…firms will be obliged to record all communications that are intended to result in a transaction”

As electronic communications such as telephone, video meetings and virtual bank meetings are becoming the norm — these meetings must also be recorded and stored in a safe, secure and searchable way.
