ESMA has compiled a new companies’ portal for investors seeking information on whether a financial service provider is authorized in the EU. ESMA has compiled this register of management companies, investment firms, alternative investment fund managers, regulated markets, multilateral trading facilities, SME growth markets, organized trading facilities, systematic internalizers, and data reporting services providers that are authorized by the national competent authorities of the member states.
The portal provides reference to sanctions applied by the competent authorities in the member states under several European legislations. The portal offers machine-to-machine services (A2A). ESMA Registers data is maintained through Solr indexes, regularly updated by the ESMA Registers system. The portal provides investors with a “one-stop-shop register”, including for:
- MiFID Investment firms including Systematic Internalizers
- MiFID Trading venues
- MiFID data reporting service providers
- UCITS management companies
- AIFMD fund managers including funds managed/marketed in the Union
Keywords: Europe, EU, Securities, MiFID II, UCITS, AIFMD, ESMA Register, Service Providers, ESMA
