MiFID II and the related Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) cover: the conduct of investment firms; authorization requirements for regulated markets; reporting; trade transparency; determining what financial instruments are eligible for trading; and securities finance. While financing has few direct references in MiFID II and MiFIR, the indirect references are far, wide, and much more important. Securities finance market participants may well find that they need to rethink some parts of their business models entirely.
