What is MiFID II?

October 12, 2017

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2014/65 (“MiFID II”) is European legislation  that is set to significantly change the functioning and regulation of financial markets in Europe. MiFID II is the successor to MiFID I and makes changes to the original regime in areas including execution practices, regulatory reporting, conflicts of interest and passporting. Its legal form as a directive necessitates separate implementation in the legislation of each EEA member state.  Learn more on our MiFID II page.
