MiFID II

MiFID II will have a significant impact on financial institutions providing services in the EU. Hogan Lovells has created this site to help firms understand what will change under MiFID II, and how those changes may affect their business.

As part of a wider global trend towards derivatives reform, MiFID II is intended to encourage derivatives trading to move from over-the-counter ("OTC") trades to trading on exchanges.

MiFID II recognises that a role remains for bespoke contracts for which it would be difficult to mandate exchange-trading, so the reform is aimed only at standardised contracts.

The focus of ESMA has been to determine how to identify which contracts should be subject to this trading obligation.
