The recast of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) is the cornerstone of post-crisis European financial markets regulation. It deals with everything from market access to regulating high frequency trading. One of the key ideas of MiFID II is to increase transparency and investor protection for both, retail and professional investors, across Europe in order to allow for smarter investment and better decisions. In this context, MiFID II will link together with other pieces of EU legislation such as the regulation for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (“PRIIPs Regulation”).
All firms providing investment services, regardless of whether they do so on the basis of inducements or fee-based, will have to fully comply with the provisions outlined in the framework of MiFID II.
1. As a general rule, all information, including marketing, communications, addressed by the investment firm to clients or potential clients shall be fair, clear and not misleading.
2. The information on financial instruments and proposed investment strategies must include appropriate guidance on and warnings of the risks associated with investments in those instruments or in respect of particular investment strategies.
3. This information shall be provided in a comprehensible form in such a manner that clients or potential clients are reasonably able to understand the nature and risks of the investment service and of the specific type of financial instrument that is being offered and, consequently, to take investment decisions on an informed basis.
4. The provisions and criteria outlined above are further specified in the framework of implementing legislation. This will lay down several specific rules on the way relevant risks of an investment service or financial instrument should be displayed in information for (potential) clients.
5. All Level II-Measures have to be approved by both the European Parliament and the European Council. Markus Ferber, MEP is leading the European Parliament’s negotiation team.
