    ESMA Updated Q&A on MiFID II and MIFIR Investor Protection

    June 06, 2017

    ESMA updated the questions and answers (Q&A) document on the implementation of investor protection topics under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation (MiFID II and MiFIR). Fourteen new Q&A, covering the topics of "information on costs and charge", "post-sale reporting," and "appropriateness," have been added.

    The overall MiFID II Q&A provide clarifications on topics such as appropriateness; best execution; suitability; post-sale reporting; inducements (research); information on charges and costs; and underwriting and placement of a financial instrument. MiFID II applies from January 03, 2018 and will strengthen the protection of investors by both introducing new requirements and reinforcing the existing ones. This set of Q&A is intended to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of MiFID II/MiFIR for investor protection topics. ESMA will continue to develop the Q&A on investor protection topics under MiFID II in the coming months by adding questions and answers to the topics already covered and by introducing new sections for other MiFID II investor protection areas not yet addressed in the Q&A.
