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.

MiFID II introduces a new category of trading venue, the organised trading facility ("OTF"). OTFs are trading venues for instruments that are not traded on regulated markets or multilateral trading facilities ("MTFs").

MiFID II also seeks to ensure a level playing field among trading venues. The different kinds of trading venues, comprising regulated markets, MTFs and OTFs, will be subject to similar transparency and organisational requirements.

The existing regime for systematic internalisers ("SIs") will be extended. As a result, it is anticipated that more firms will be treated as SIs for a greater range of financial instruments.

MiFID II also sets out rules on access for trading venues and central counterparties ("CCPs").
