The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published its Work Programme for 2015. The programme sets out how ESMA intends to achieve its statutory objectives of investor protection and stable and orderly functioning markets through its operational activities of convergence, risk monitoring and analysis, the single rulebook and supervision. The projected work programme is based on a budget of €38,639,000 and a staff base of 202 people as per the budget approved by ESMA’s Board of Supervisors on 6 February 2014 and subsequently submitted to the EU institutions. At the time of drafting, the budget prepared by the European Commission and sent to the EU Council and Parliament for ESMA in 2015 is for €33,627,920 and 186 people. In order to prepare for the eventuality that ESMA will receive fewer posts than planned for in the work programme, Annex 5 contains a list of the areas of work that ESMA would be unable to accomplish in 2015 with reduced resources.

12/11/2013 2013/1643 Cover Note- Public statement containing information on shareholder cooperation and acting in concert under the Takeover Bids Directive (ESMA/2013/1642) , Reference PDF
145.01 KB
In accordance with its mandate to take appropriate action in the context of takeover bids as per Article 1.3 of Regulation (EU) 1095/2010 (ESMA Regulation), ESMA is releasing a public statement on shareholder cooperation and acting in concert under the Takeover Bids Directive (Directive 2004/25/EC). This statement has been prepared following the review and report by the European Commission on the application of the Takeover Bids Directive and is based on information collected about the practices and application of that Directive. The statement has been prepared in order to help shareholders identify activities in relation to which they can cooperate (insofar as those activities are available to them under national company law), without that cooperation, in and of itself, leading to a conclusion that the shareholders are acting in concert and thus being at risk of having to make a mandatory bid under the Takeover Bids Directive. These activities are presented in the statement in the form of a “White List”. The statement has been prepared by the Takeover Bids Network, a permanent working group operating under the auspices of ESMA that promotes exchange of information on practices and application of the Takeover Bids Directive across the European Economic Area, thereby strengthening a common supervisory culture. The Takeover Bids Network is a specialist group composed of the national competent authorities appointed under the Takeover Bids Directive. The competent authorities represented on the ESMA Board of Supervisors are not in all cases appointed as competent authorities within the Takeover Bids Directive. The authorities not represented on the Board of Supervisors but competent within the area of takeovers are the Austrian Takeover Commission, the Irish Takeover Panel, the Oslo Stock Exchange of Norway, the Takeover Panel of Sweden and the Takeover Panel of the United Kingdom. These five authorities have contributed to the public statement and will have regard to it in the same manner as the other members of the Takeover Bids Network when assessing whether shareholders are acting in concert under their national takeover rules.
20/12/2013 2013/1970 Draft Regulatory Technical Standards on specific situations that require the publication of a supplement to the prospectus , Technical Standards PDF
713.74 KB
The Final Report contains the draft Regulatory Technical Standard (RTS) on situations which require the publication of a supplement to the prospectus which ESMA is required to submit to the European Commission by 1 January 2014 in accordance with Article 16(3) of the Prospectus Directive. The Report furthermore includes a summary of the main responses received to ESMA’s Consultation Paper which was published in March 2013. The draft RTS sets out nine situations which are always considered to be significant in the context of securities issuance and where a supplement to the prospectus will always be required. Other situations would require a case-by-case assessment.
30/06/2014 2014/726 Enhanced protection for retail investors: MiFID II and MiFIR Reference PDF
559.7 KB
Changes are being made to a key piece of European law whose purpose is to protect you when you buy or invest in financial products. The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) is being updated and strengthened in some important areas and will be known as MiFID II. MiFID is central to the regulation of financial markets in the European Union. It regulates the provision of investment services in financial instruments (such as shares, bonds, derivatives and various structured products) by banks and investment firms, and the operation of traditional stock exchanges and alternative trading venues. One of its core objectives is to ensure a high degree of harmonised protection for investors in financial instruments. We highlight some of the more important changes taking place to MiFID which we think are most relevant to you as a retail investor.
