Examining product governance guidelines under MiFID II

The product governance guidelines under MiFID II are part of the regulatory framework aimed at protecting investors across the EEA.  ESMA published its final report on the guidelines on 2 June 2017.

Bond Dickinson has produced a briefing note that looks at: the purpose of the guidelines, how the guidelines differ from ESMA’s consultation, the key issues raises in responses to the consultation and what lawyers and their clients should be doing to prepare for the proposed changes.  The briefing note can be found here.
