Summary of Derivatives Reporting Regulations Part 3: MiFID

The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2004/39/EC (MiFID) is European Union regulation for investment services across the 31 European countries (EU, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein). MiFID was written prior to EMIR and overlaps with EMIR’s derivatives trading and reporting obligations in many respects. MiFID also conflicts with some of EMIR’s requirements, particularly in the use of Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs).
