Regulatory information

MIFID II

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II, which took effect in January 2018, requires market participants to communicate closely in order to comply with the comprehensive regulatory requirements.

With the aim of providing our clients and counterparties with easy access to some essential MiFID II questions such as relevant contact persons, LEI codes, trading relationship etc., we have set up this FAQ.

Our web page is continually updated.
