Your partner for MiFID II

SIX has a proven track record of delivering data and services for compliance with complex regulations, as demonstrated with MiFID I.

Data and expertise for MiFID II compliance

The MiFID II / MiFIR regulatory framework has been introduced to bring greater transparency, safety and more resilience to the financial markets. The regulation brings enormous complexity for firms throughout the industry in terms of generating, collecting and processing financial data.

As a leading global provider of reference data and a long history with regulations, we have developed complete data sets for investor protection, transparency, transaction and reference data reporting obligations.

This comes as a result of client consultation in interviews, workshops and forming the SIX MiFID II Working Group with specialists from international financial institutions in which requirements and pain points are addressed. We are also proactively working with trading venues, industry associations and regulators to ensure clients always get up-to-date information on the regulation.

Useful Information

What is MiFID II?

The MiFID II / MiFIR regulatory framework seeks to improve the competitiveness of EU financial markets and ensure investor protection for investors in financial instruments. The directive’s main goal is to standardize the EU financial markets.

Since 3 January 2018, all investment firms in the EU / EEA are required to comply with MiFID II, including firms providing investment advice and portfolio management on a client-by-client basis. MiFID II creates new challenges in terms of data collection, analysis and reporting to National Competent Authorities (NCAs) and the EU regulator ESMA.
