On 31 January 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published an updated version of its Q&As on MiFID II and MiFIR transparency topics. The updated Q&As modifies ESMA’s response to question 1 of its section on the systematic internaliser regime. The question asks:

“By when will ESMA publish information about the total number and the volume of transactions executed in the Union and when do investment firms have to perform the assessment whether they should be considered as systematic internalisers for the first time as well as for subsequent periods?”
