Will MiFID II regulation affect you?

MiFID II is in force from January 2018

MiFiD II builds on MiFID I to help prevent breaches, disorderly trading and market abuse – and will be in force from January 2018. Unlike MiFID I, which was a directive that recommended best EU practice, MiFID II is a regulation. It is mandatory for financial institutions to adhere to MIFID II mobile recording.

MiFID II is 196 pages long. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has translated this into 406 pages of technical standards – seven of which relate to mobile recording.

This includes:

Does Brexit mean UK firms are exempt from MiFID II mobile recording?

Even though the UK has voted to leave the EU, MiFID II regulation applies because:

  • The deadline is 3rd January 2018 – the UK will still be in the EU on 3rd January 2018, so must meet EU laws and regulations.
  • Third-party equivalent applies – if you trade with or provide services to European companies, you must adhere to EU regulations, including MiFiD II.
  • The FCA says you must – it states the UK is committed to the January 2018 implementation date and all firms must meet their obligations under UK law, including those derived from EU law.
