FIA Special Report: FIA and FIA Europe Provide Summaries of ESMA's Latest MiFID II Regulations (Jan. 14, 2015)
On Dec. 19 the European Securities and Markets Authority published several documents that define a large number of critically important rules affecting European securities and derivatives markets. The documents consist of final Technical Advice to the European Commission and a Consultation Paper that seeks public comment on technical standards for the implementation of these rules.  The publication of these documents are the latest step in the process for implementing MiFID II, the legislative framework governing the requirements applicable to investment firms, trading venues and clearinghouses in the European Union. 

In light of the importance of these documents, FIA and FIA Europe will be issuing a series of special reports with descriptions of certain key issues of particular relevance to participants in the global markets for listed and cleared derivatives. The initial report will summarize the main issues and each subsequent report will focus on a particular area of interest to members of the two associations. The reports are provided for general informational purposes only and do not constitute legal or regulatory advice.
