IRSG position paper on the European Commission Markets in Financial Instruments Directive proposals

Published 24 Feb 2012

The IRSG believes that, to enable international capital flows to continue, significant improvements are needed to the MiFID/R proposals. MiFID/R needs to balance the need for access to international markets with maintaining high standards of investor protection and market integrity within the EU.

This paper sets the IRSG's position with regards to the MiFID proposals and focuses on 5 key areas:

  • Transparency
  • Third country access
  • SME Markets
  • High Frequency Trading
  • Execution only broking
