The EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) came into force on 1 November 2007.
The main purpose of MiFID, in addition to improving investor protection, is to create an integrated, competitive market for investment services inside the European Economic Area (EEA) and to harmonise conduct of business rules in all the countries concerned.
The EEA consists of the EU member states, plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein. It does not include Switzerland or Monaco.
Our clients can download the latest updates of the documents required under MiFID (see below).
Your contact person or usual advisor will be happy to provide any further information you may require.
You can also send any questions about MiFID to your contact or to HSBC Global Asset Management (France).
