31/07/2014 2014/944 Potential Risks Associated with Investing in Contingent Convertible Instruments , Statement PDF
106.1 KB
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is issuing this statement to clarify to institutional investors risks from a newly emerging asset class referred to by most market participants as contingent convertibles instruments (CoCos). If they work as intended in a crisis CoCos will play an important role to inhibit risk transfer from debt holders to taxpayers. They along with standards to improve the quality and quantity of bank capital reflect a considerate response to the former regulatory capital framework. However, it is unclear as to whether investors fully consider the risks of CoCos and correctly factor those risks into their valuation. ESMA believes there are specific risks to CoCos and that investors should take those risks into consideration prior to investing in these instruments.
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.
