Open Letter: "MiFID II rules for 'Systematic Internalisers' will hurt European investors"


In principle, European individual Investors welcome the introduction of the new Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II). However, given BETTER FINANCE’s priority to ensure the protection of individual European savers and investors, we are concerned about the shrinking share of regulated securities markets in the EU, now down to around 50 % of transactions, compared to 67 % in the US and 88% in East Asia. Recent research reveals that the majority of OTC trades (58%) are retail-sized trades and that a significant part of the trades of European individual investors are now executed on these “dark” venues. Capital markets must remain fully open and transparent to individual investors.

ESAs - TODAY S PROPOSED REFORM OF EUROPEAN FINANCIAL SUPERVISION SAVERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL SERVICES USERS RISK SUFFERING MORE - 200917


20 September 2017 - The European Commission (EC) announced its proposal to improve the supervision of European financial services as well as its revision of the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) today. BETTER FINANCE welcomes the proposal to have permanent members on the Boards of Supervisors of the ESAS as an improvement to their governance. However, as the proposal lacks ambition with regards to consumer and investor protection and fails to give the ESAs teeth with which to enforce EU Law, the outlook for the public enforcement of conduct of financial business rules looks grim.
