MIFID II and MIFIR

On 20th October 2011, the European Commission published two proposals: the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), along with Markets in Financial Investments Regulation (MiFIR). Both the Directive and Regulation aim to establish a safer and more transparent financial system by enhancing regulatory requirements, market transparency and investor protection.

The trade association has published a paper titled MiFID II/MIFIR Demystified in anticipation of the upcoming initiative.
