MiFID II – redesigning Europe’s markets

Derivatives Trading & Clearing Sales at Eurex

The clock is ticking, the suspense is high: Very soon, the biggest market reform in decades kicks off. The Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) and Directive II (short: MiFID II) will
fundamentally redesign Europe’s derivatives markets. As a global derivatives exchange and the largest venue in Europe, Eurex will play a key role in this significant undertaking, adding crucial value to the mammoth project.

Our recent paper “MiFID II – redesigning Europe’s markets” examines how an exchange can reduce the stress in the markets, and gives an overview on the main components of a well-functioning derivatives market.
