Objectives of the session

The objective of this session is to assess whether MiFID II has achieved its objectives in terms of securities trading and access to market data, identify the main issues that need addressing in these areas and discuss the way forward for tackling these issues.

Points of discussion

Has MiFID II generally achieved its objectives in the securities trading area in terms of increasing transparency and improving competition and best execution? What are the main improvements and shortcomings so far for investors, issuers and the market in general? What are the issues that need reviewing in the perspective of Brexit?

Has MiFID II helped to improve the availability of appropriate trading data and what are the main issues that need tackling?

What are the main priorities for addressing the issues posed by MiFID II concerning securities trading and trading data? How may the EU public institutions address the unintended consequences and shortcomings of MiFID II securities trading rules without initiating a MiFID III?
