European regulation of unsecured investment products
What's in this course?
The European regulatory framework for the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, known as MiFID16, was introduced in 1999.
Since then, the regulatory framework has been reformed to address new challenges identified after the first implementation of the regulation.
