Posted by: Katy Ruddell | Date posted : 30/09/2016

MiFID II will be implemented into UK law on 3 January 2018 and will replace Directive 2004/39/EC (MiFID I). MiFID II aims to enhance the efficiency and integrity of the financial markets across the European Union and we have prepared a suite of briefings on key areas of change. This briefing focuses on the proposed strengthening of the protection of investors under MiFID II and the resultant changes to FCA rules as set out in the FCA's recent Consultation Paper CP16/19. We also consider the practical impact of these proposals for UK firms.
