The MiFIDII / MiFIR and the delegated acts supplementing them ushered in 2018 an era of increased transparency towards market participants. The framework builds on the experiences of MiFID and imposes additional disclosure obligations for nearly all investment firms, as well as a new obligation to present information to market participants regarding best execution.
Moreover MiFIDII/MiFIR increased the reporting obligations for nearly all firms transacting either on or off exchange in an effort to provide regulators with a better overview of the financial markets to minimise instances of Market Abuse.
