ESMA clarifies calculations for MiFID II non-equity instruments

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued today an opinion with interim transparency calculations for non-equity instruments in relation to the implementation of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive/Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFID II). These calculations specify the transparency regime applicable to trading in secondary markets from 3 January 2018, when MiFID II will enter into force.

Steven Maijoor, ESMA Chair, stated: “Six months from today, the transparency of EU financial and commodities markets will start to improve significantly. Including non-equity products into MIFID II’s scope is a major step forward. It will better help to protect against market abuse and better mitigate systemic risks.”
