The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) originally aimed to increase competition and integration in markets for financial instruments. After the financial crisis, it was evident that greater investor protection was needed.
The EU created MiFID II to broaden the scope to other financial instruments and trading venues. This extends to market participants and activities not previously regulated. Most of it is adopted into the FCA's Handbook.
Our Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) Course explains the new MiFID II rules and what is required to comply with these rules.
Available as part of our FCA Compliance Library.
