On 4 April 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority published an updated version of its supervisory briefing on MiFID II appropriateness requirements. The new version of the supervisory briefing takes into account the new version of ESMA’s guidelines on suitability published last year with respect to aspects also relevant to the appropriateness rules. The supervisory briefing is aimed at Member State competent authorities. It also aims to give market participants indications of compliant implementation of the MiFID II appropriateness provisions.
