The European Securities and Markets Authority’s (ESMA) Supervisory Convergence Work Programme for 2016 (2016 SCWP) supplements ESMA’s Annual Work Programme for 2016 (ESMA/2015/1475) by further elaborating the nature and focus of the work ESMA will carry out in order to promote supervisory convergence and how that will contribute to implementing ESMA’s Strategic Orientation for 2016-2020 (ESMA/2015/935).

The 2016 SCWP provides an overview and explanation of the steps ESMA will take in 2016 to promote sound, efficient and consistent supervision in the EU.  It sets out priority areas and how they have been identified and sets them in the context of the wider work programme and environment.

Implementation of the 2016 SCWP will be monitored in the course of 2016 and depending on developments during the year, priorities might be re-adjusted. It will also be used to inform ESMA’s Annual Report and its supervisory convergence work programme for future years which will be risk-based.

05/11/2014 2014/1333 Asset management – The regulatory challenges ahead- Steven Maijoor at EFAMA Investment Management Forum Speech PDF
186.09 KB
Steven Maijoor, ESMA Chair, delivered the keynote speech at EFAMA's Investment Management Forum in Brussels. His speech focused on the regulatory challenges ahead for the asset management sector. "It is very good to be back again at this important event. Before coming here today I had the chance to surf the EFAMA website and it struck me that your website is as overrun as ESMA’s website is with the many well-known European acronyms that have become part of our standard vocabulary in financial markets. This observation also made it clear to me that the topics that keep both our organisations busy are very similar. Given the current activities of ESMA, you probably expect me to structure my contribution according to these acronyms and inform you on all of our current regulatory work that is relevant for the asset management sector. However, I would like to start first with an economic perspective on asset management, but let me assure you that later in my contribution I will not disappoint you and will refer to AIFMD, MIFID, UCITS and PRIIPs."

761.62 KB
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has conducted a peer review on how national regulators (national competent authorities or NCAs) supervise and enforce the MiFID provisions relating to investment firms’ obligation to provide best execution, or obtain the best possible result, for their clients when executing their orders. ESMA found that the level of implementation of best execution provisions, as well as the level of convergence of supervisory practices by NCAs, is relatively low. In order to address this situation a number of improvements were identified, including: • prioritisation of best execution as a key conduct of business supervisory issue; • the allocation of sufficient resources to best execution supervision; and • a more proactive supervisory approach to monitoring compliance with best execution requirements, both desk-based and onsite inspections. The review was conducted on the basis of information provided by 29 NCAs and complemented by on-site visits to the NCAs of France, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland and Spain.
