What is the European directive MiFID II for?

Given the complexity of financial markets and products, the European Union has been developing a legal framework since 2007 to regulate investment mechanisms for investors.

What is the crux of the legal provisions? Greater transparency and better investor protection.

The directive known as MiFID II, which enters into force on 3 January 2018 (as of 26 November 2017 – the implementation date for MiFID II at BGL BNP Paribas), will strengthen existing protection measures and ensure greater transparency with regard to services provided and fees charged.

Your Investor Profile, the cornerstone of your investments

We determine your Investor Profile on the basis of your answers to a series of questions outlining your knowledge and experience of financial instruments, your investment objectives and your capacity to absorb losses. Your Profile is determined according to whether your risk appetite is low, moderate, advanced or high.
