MAD is intended to guarantee the integrity of European financial markets and increase investor confidence. Any unlawful behaviour in the financial markets is prohibited. The concept of market abuse typically consists of insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation.
MAR aims at enhancing market integrity and investor protection.
To this end MAR updates and strengthened the existing MAD framework by extending its scope to new markets and trading strategies and by introducing new requirements.
