Given the complexity of financial markets and products, the European Union has been developing a legal framework since 2007 to regulate investment mechanisms for investors.
What is the crux of the legal provisions? Greater transparency and better investor protection.
The directive known as MiFID II, which enters into force on 3 January 2018, will strengthen existing protection measures and ensure greater transparency with regard to services provided and fees charged.
