MiFID II & MiFIR: FAQs

In October 2011, the European Commission tabled proposals to revise the original Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) with the aim of making financial markets more efficient, resilient and transparent, and to strengthen investor protection.

On 15 May 2014, the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) were published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

These FAQs will attempt to clarify some of the key issues surrounding both MiFID II and MiFIR.
