The European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) has voted to delay the entry into force of MiFID II by a year. Apart from adapting the date, the ECON also voted in favour of a few targeted amendments to create a specific transparency regime for packaged transactions, introduce a clarification for the own account exemption and exempt securities financing transactions from the MiFID II transparency rules.
