The Directive on Markets in Financial Instruments repealing Directive 2004/39/EC (“MiFID I”) and the Regulation on Markets in Financial Instruments (commonly referred to as “MiFID II” and “MiFIR”, respectively) were adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in May 2014. These new rules are designed to take into account developments in the trading environment since the implementation of MiFID I in 2007 and, following the financial crisis, to improve the functioning of financial markets making them more efficient, resilient and transparent.
Both MiFID II and MiFIR shall apply, subject to certain exceptions, within EU Member States from 3 January 2018. For additional background information on MiFID II and MiFIR, please visit:
