Imminent entry into force in France of the provisions of the European Directive on the market for financial instruments (Mifid 2)

January 3, 2018 is the date of entry into force in France of the European Directive on the market for financial instruments (MiFID 2). Thus, new governance rules for financial products will be introduced. These are part of the objective of strengthening investor protection, with measures allowing them to be offered financial products that correspond to their real financial needs.

Who is concerned by these rules? The delegated directive of the European Commission 2017/593 specifies that the rules apply directly to investment firms and management companies domiciled in the European Union.
