The Markets in Financial Services Regulation and Directive (MiFID II) is part of the wider European Financial Services Action Plan. The main aim of creating a single market for financial services is to establish a stable, competitive and transparent financial services framework across the European Union.
The regulatory transaction reporting regime will be standardised across Europe under the Markets in Financial Services Regulation. The primary purpose of transaction reports is to detect and investigate suspected market abuse, insider dealer and market manipulation.
MiFID II is a far-reaching reform across European Financial markets, which will create new requirements for firms and fundamentally alter the structures of certain markets. The Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) Level 1 text states, under Article 26(1), that investment firms that execute transactions in financial instruments shall report complete and accurate details of such transactions to the Competent Authorities as quickly as possible and no later than the close of the following working day, 23:59:59 UTC to be exact.
While the Markets in Financial Services Directive (MiFID) allowed Member States a degree of flexibility in interpreting the transaction reporting requirements into local law, the implementation of the regime under the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) will be directly applicable and binding to all Member States.
This workshop will provide delegates with a review and highlight some of the significant challenges and updates since the new regime went live on the 3rd January 2018. Attending this workshop will enable participants to:
