ESMA publishes latest edition of its newsletter

05 October 2021

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU’s securities markets regulator, has today published its latest edition of its Spotlight on Markets Newsletter.

Your one-stop-shop in the world of EU financial markets focuses this month on the 2022 Annual Work Programme, the enforcement case against trade repository UnaVista Limited, and on Cloud outsourcing and financial stability risks – one of the articles included in the latest Trends, Risks and Vulnerabilities Report.

In the context of important changes for ESMA, with new powers and senior management as well as significant growth in staff numbers, the question everyone had was “What is ESMA going to focus on next year?”

The key areas for 2022 were set out in the Work Programme and include: the exercise of new, and existing, supervisory powers for benchmarks and data service providers as well as central counterparties; its contribution to the EU priorities on the development of the Capital Markets Union, sustainable finance and innovation; and the convergence of supervisory and regulatory practices across the EU.
