The EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) came into force on 1 November 2007.

About MiFID

The main purpose of MiFID, in addition to improving investor protection, is to create an integrated, competitive market for investment services inside the European Economic Area (EEA) and to harmonise conduct of business rules in all the countries concerned.

The EEA consists of the EU member states, plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein. It does not include Switzerland or Monaco.

Our clients can download the latest updates of the documents required under MiFID (see below).
