Campaign launched to inform consumers about MiFID II

27 October 2015

MiFID II: the European Securities and Market Authority (ESMA) has published its draft regulatory technical standards which are designed to establish ways of working under MiFID II. If this is passed in its current form, some stakeholders are concerned that the legislation would result in energy companies being subject to similar requirements to those affecting investment banks.

The main concern of energy companies and their consumers is the risk of higher energy prices. For this reason stakeholder organisations led by the European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) have created a website (www.keepeuenergycompetitive.eu) to post discussions on this topic. The creators hope that the information on this website be shared with national and EU authorities.
