JWG-IT and Eukleia Training announce training initiative to help capital market participants meet the challenges of MiFID


JWG-IT Group Ltd, the independent think-tank for EU regulatory change, and Eukleia Training Ltd, the leading compliance training company, today announced a partnership to provide high quality Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) related training to the European financial services market.

Combining the expert training capabilities and resources of Eukleia with JWG-IT’s in-depth knowledge of the operational impacts of MiFID, the partnership will design and deliver a range of courses addressing a comprehensive set of MiFID- related subjects. The first classroom based course will be delivered in February 2007.

Commenting on this initiative, PJ Di Giammarino, CEO of JWG-IT, said “Over the last six months, we have had a number of approaches from organisations looking for training assistance, but we felt that, while we were focused on developing our core analysis material and MiFID Market Models, we would not be in a position to help. Working with Eukleia means that we can leverage our material and expertise and deliver it to the market in new ways. We were particularly attracted to working with Eukleia for the depth of experience that they bring from many years of providing compliance training to a wide range of financial institutions.

Patrick Thompson, Managing Director of Eukleia adds “MiFID is the key regulatory issue our clients face at present, and as such, we are developing a range of materials to support their training needs. The scope of MiFID has an impact across a wide range of operational, systems and other functional areas in addition to core compliance. We therefore believe that working with a specialist partner will produce training that is relevant to a wider audience, and is also more effective, since it can cut across these traditional functional boundaries. JWG-IT has established itself as the thought-leader in the MiFID space and its work with leading financial institutions has generated an enormous range of analysis material, implementation tools and a keen understanding of the operational implications that MiFID will have.“
