MiFID - Markets in Financial Instruments Directive

The new Austrian Securities Supervision Act (Wertpapieraufsichtsgesetz - WAG) 2018 bears significant changes for banks in their overall securities business operation. 

The EU-Directive on Markets in Financial Instruments - short: MiFID - aims at harmonising the regulations for trading securities within the European Union. How does this affect you and us as your private banking partner?
