Panopticon Demo: Ensure Best Execution and MiFID II Compliance

Best execution under MiFID II is a holdover from its predecessor, MiFID I, but with two kickers. First, it’s much broader in scope, applying to all asset classes versus MiFID I’s equities-only focus. Second, and perhaps more onerously, it’s more forceful: investment firms have an obligation to take “all sufficient steps” to execute client orders to ensure the best possible outcome for their customers, compared with MiFID I’s mere “all reasonable steps”.
