Investment Services (MiFID Regulations)
In January 2018, the current regulation came into force introducing the European Directive on Markets in Financial Instruments, known as MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive), whose main objectives are to improve the transparency and supervision of financial markets and strengthen the protection of investors, with more demanding standards of conduct while creating a homogeneous framework in the European Union in terms of investment services, which improves the efficiency and integration of financial markets.
A high standard of transparency is established for this, including strict obligations regarding pre- and post-contractual information, controls of convenience and suitability of investments, execution of orders, incentives and management of conflicts of interest, among other measures.
Below, you can find the updated information that Bankinter provides to customers regarding the provision of investment services which it recommends you read.
Among the attached documents is the document “Information on investment products and services”, briefly detailing the most relevant aspects of this standard and information of interest on how we apply it at Bankinter. Other relevant documents are also made available, whose content and purpose are explained in them.
Finally, a series of links are included, through which current legislation can be consulted.
