MiFID II has led to profound changes in the functioning of the financial markets in Europe, including regulating markets which previously had little or no supervision (such as the bond, equity derivatives or commodity markets—not to mention carbon emission allowances).
One peculiarity of the MiFID II regime lies in the volume of the regulation—an unprecedented quantity of texts and associated doctrine. While the MiFID I regime consisted only of a directive and two delegated texts, the MiFID II regime is comprised of a directive and a regulation with more than 50 delegated texts.
