MiFID II/R implementation
MiFID II/R impacts almost all of our members since while it is European legislation it also has implications for members outside Europe and its scope is extremely broad.

ICMA brings together senior buy-side, sell-side and trading venue active market participants, in various ICMA committees, working groups and councils to discuss the impact of MiFID II on European business models. Through robust discussion, ICMA members will better understand the ‘direction of travel’ for European fixed income primary and secondary markets, and plan accordingly.

The main topics we are focusing on are listed below with the appropriate links to resources on the website.
