NOTE: Our concerns were first sent on January 23rd, 2019 during the shut down 
To whom it may concern,
With recent suggestions in the news that the SEC may adopt MiFID-like rules in the US, I would like to share an editorial co-authored by Scott Davis, CEO and Chairman, and Carter Copeland, President, of Melius Research sent to the investment community on Nov. 23,2018. (attached)
“A Year Into MiFID II,  Why MiFID II Isn’t Working as Intended and Investors are Losing as a Result”, makes the case that MiFID II rules “have actually connected research, trading, and investment banking more explicitly, rather than separate them further.”
