Since 2007, the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) had increased competition and innovation, leading to better services and protection for investors in Europe. Even though MiFID I had only applicable for a relatively short number of years, the Commission proposed introducing MiFID II (Directive 2014/65/EU) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) (Regulation (EU) 600/2014) as a result of a more complex European market with increasingly diverse financial instruments and methods of trading. MiFID II and MiFIR, which were published in the Official Journal of the EU (OJ) on 12 June 2014 and came into force on 2 July 2014, repealed and recast MiFID I. Member states were to adopt measures transposing the MiFID II Directive into national law by 3 July 2017, and apply them by 3 January 2018.
