CEPS Task Force

MiFID Review

What is Next for European Capital Markets?


The European Capital Markets Institute and the Centre for European Policy Studies wish to engage in the international debate with European regulators on the review of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) run by the European Commission and the Committee of European Securities Regulators. The revision of MiFID represents a new challenge for Europe, which strives to improve efficiency and integration of its capital markets.

ECMI and CEPS have launched a Task Force titled ‘MiFID Review: What is Next for European Capital Markets?’.  The proposal foresees a multidisciplinary approach in the composition of the Group and drafting process, which will bring market participants, international experts, academics and regulators around the same table. CEPS Task Force reports are very influential on European institutions’ policy-making processes and play a key role as background document of several policy actions at European level, in many different areas.

The Task Force – in its meetings – will evaluate current proposals, proposing a set of recommendations for the forthcoming MiFID review. Analyses and recommendations will be included in a final report issued by the end of 2010, which will be submitted by ECMI and CEPS to the European regulators. Regulators, in fact, will be actively involved in the Task Force meetings (presentations, etc) in order to fine tune the work of the Task Force with their one. A final event will launch the report with the participation of European institutions and media. The first meeting will be held on June 11th, 2010 at CEPS offices in Brussels.
