  • Make potential risks more visible
  • Prevent exacerbation of the global financial crisis

2. Tax regulations are designed to:

  • Increase national tax revenues
  • Prevent the siphoning off of capital into so-called ‘tax havens’

3. Client consulting regulations aim to:

  • Protect you from risk
  • Make sure you only receive financial products appropriate to your risk profile


MIFID II comprises of two levels of European legislation. Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II and Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MIFIR).

Primary objectives of this regulation are:

  1. To create a level playing field and ensure that all the organised trading is conducted on regulated trading venues: Regulated Markets, Multilateral Trading Facilities and Organised Trading Facilities. 
  2. To make national competent authorities and regulators aware of market exposure by enforcing pre and post trade transparency of wide range of financial instruments.
  3. To make financial markets more efficient, resilient and transparent.
  4. To strengthen the protection of investors.

Regulation will go into effect in January 2018.
