MiFID II – New Challenges for the Financial Market Require new Regulations

From January 3, 2018, the revision of the European financial markets comes into force. It will have far-reaching effects on all entities operating in the financial market or holding securities. Based on the experiences gained from the financial market crash in 2008, a new regulation by the name of MiFID II has been implemented in order to take account of the new challenges with regard to security and transparency of the business dealings. For further information on MiFID II please click here.
