London, 10 August 2016 – The sequel to 2007’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive is set for implementation in January 2018, and its scale and scope should not be underestimated. Both MiFID II and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation extend the scope of requirements from equities and equity-like instruments to nearly every other asset class under the sun.

This report highlights some of MiFID II and MiFIR’s key impacts for Aite Group clients operating in the European markets. It is based on conversations with market participants at capital markets firms and regulators active in Europe, and a poll of 95 attendees of an Aite Group webinar in June 2016.
