Recently, ESMA submitted its regulatory technical standards to the EU Commission, greatly reducing the market uncertainty that has been surrounding the introduction of MiFID II. This was the starting point for an even more active period of innovation and change, as players respond to the new rules and introduce new ways of dealing with them. For market practitioners, the message is clear: a flexible approach to market structure changes is required to minimize the risk in responding to the new European trading landscape and the unforeseen innovation that will accompany the adoption of the MiFID II.
This paper looks at which firms will be affected and how, and offers some guidance on meeting the technology and process requirements under the new market structure rules and definitions. It draws upon a survey of 11 electronic trading executives from Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 sell-side financial institutions across Europe conducted by A-Team.
