500.54 KB
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.

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.

25/02/2015 2015/494 Best Execution under MiFID , Final Report PDF
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.
