Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II will come into effect on 3 January 2018 and deliver some significant changes to investing regulations in the UK.

What will MiFID II do?

MiFID II will introduce enhanced obligations for companies providing investment services, providing three main benefits to investors:

  • Greater transparency of fees and charges
  • A move from annual to quarterly investment statements
  • Added protection from market abuse
