FACTBOX-Asset managers' plans for handling investment research costs under EU's MiFID-II

 (Adds Artemis Investment Management)
    Oct 10 (Reuters) - New regulations taking effect next year
will force brokers in the European Union to charge clients
separately for investment research, rather than bundling the cost
in with trading services. 
    Part of a wide-ranging set of rules under the Markets in
Financial Instruments Directive, or MiFID II, the regulators say
the move is aimed at making European securities markets more
transparent and providing better value for money for investors.
    The MiFID II directive comes into force in January and leaves
asset managers with a choice of whether to absorb the cost of
paying for outside research or pass it on to clients.

    Asset managers Janus Henderson, Schroders,
Invesco and  Union Investment have said they plan to pay
for investment research costs themselves, after previously saying
they would pass costs on to clients.
