As of January 2018, the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (“MiFID II”) is in full force and effect in the Netherlands, together with the new Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation ('MiFIR'). The new regulations are partly meant to better protect investors, to guarantee a level playing field within Europe and to enhance financial stability. MiFID II sets a new standard for companies that provide investment services, including those that are involved in carrying out and/or receiving and transmitting orders, individual asset management and investment advice.

MiFID II and MiFIR do not only have a significant impact on your business operations, but also on your business model. If your company has already been regulated for investment services under the Financial Supervision Act, this means existing processes, systems, controls and reports are fully compliant with all requirements within the scope of these regulations. You become MiFID II compliant but need to maintain the fully compliant status. PwC can help you achieve and maintain the MiFID II compliant status.
