Shift in MiFID II timeline

Anne PlestedKay Swinburne MEP delivered an excellent update on the progress of the MiFID review at a recent conference on the Challenges of MiFID II.  She revealed that the final legislative proposal – focusing on transparency, proportional oversight of the market and investor protection – would now be completed “after the summer” and by September. Publication of the draft legislation had previously been expected by July.

Dr Swinburne reported that the pre-legislative process was now getting underway for the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers to produce their reports and that agreement on MiFID II legislation was likely “within a year” which, by my calculation, means by September 2012.

If you have any comments on this shift in dates, please feel free to post them.
