How will MiFID II impact investors?
On 3 January 2018 a new regulation, the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II), will be implemented. MiFID II aims to improve investor protection and transparency across the financial markets in the European Union.
The regulation has introduced some changes to the way in which we are required to collect and report information to investors. In our Guide to MiFID II, we have summarised the key changes that will impact clients in the following services:
• Downing EIS funds
• Downing Estate Planning Service
• Downing AIM Estate Planning Service
• Downing AIM ISA
Downing Crowd Bonds will not be affected by the main changes resulting from MiFID II. We can no longer pay commission for advising clients on Downing Crowd Bonds but we will continue to facilitate adviser fees. We can continue to pay commission for execution-only and introduced clients (i.e. where they select their own Bonds).
For more information, please read our Guide to MiFID II.
