18/02/2015 2015/319 Addendum Consultation Paper- MiFID II/MiFIR Consultation Paper PDF
2.78 MB
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published today a consultation paper (CP) which complements the transparency section of the CP on MiFID II/MiFIR published on 19 December 2014. This CP covers the following non-equity asset classes: foreign exchange derivatives; credit derivatives; other derivatives; and contracts for difference (CFDs). For each asset class two sections are provided: the first presents the analysis on the definition of a liquid market and the second includes the calculations on the pre-trade and post-trade transparency large in scale (LIS) and size specific to the instrument (SSTI) thresholds. The last section of the CP completes draft RTS 9 (Transparency requirements in respect of bonds, structured finance products, emission allowances and derivatives) published in Annex B of the CP on MiFID II/MiFIR on 19 December 2014, where rules and tables were included for bonds, structured finance products, emission allowances and derivatives not covered in this more recent analysis. This CP should be read in conjunction with ESMA’s CP on MiFID II/MiFIR and the related Annex B published on 19 December 2014. This consultation runs until 20 March 2015. ESMA will use the input received to finalise its draft RTS which will be sent for endorsement to the European Commission in mid-2015. MiFID II/ MiFIR and its implementing measures will be applicable from 3 January 2017.

482.2 KB
Crowdfunding is a means of raising finance for projects from ‘the crowd’ often by means of an internet-based platform through which project owners ‘pitch’ their idea to potential backers, who are typically not professional investors.  It takes many forms, not all of which involve the potential for a financial return.  ESMA’s focus is on crowdfunding which involves investment, as distinct from donation, non-monetary reward or loan agreement.Crowdfunding is relatively young and business models are evolving. EU financial services rules were not designed with the industry in mind.  Within investment-based crowdfunding a range of different operational structures are used so it is not straightforward to map crowdfunding platforms’ activities to those regulated under EU legislation. Member States and NCAs have been working out how to treat crowdfunding, with some dealing with issues case-by-case, some seeking to clarify how crowdfunding fits into existing rules and others introducing specific requirements.To assist NCAs and market participants, and to promote regulatory and supervisory convergence, ESMA has assessed typical investment-based crowdfunding business models and how they could evolve, risks typically involved for project owners, investors and the platforms themselves and the likely components of an appropriate regulatory regime. ESMA then prepared a detailed analysis of how the typical business models map across to the existing EU legislation, set out in sections 1 to 6 of this document.
